Emergency Closing

When conditions warrant the Library Director has the authority to close the library.  Such conditions might include severe weather, failure of library utilities, or any event that renders basic library services impossible for an extended period.

Announcement of closing will be made through the library’s website, social media, and posted on all entrances, if possible.  In the event of an emergency closure, due dates for items will be extended until the library is able to reopen.
