Children's area, Pierson Library

Starting Wednesday, March 24th, the library will be open for 30 minute browsing sessions for individuals and families:

·         10am – 4pm Monday through Saturday, with a 4pm-8pm late night on Tuesdays

Note that when you enter the building, you will be asked to fill out a contact tracing form, and that the library

is not yet able to offer space for meetings, reading, or gathering.  We hope to be able to do so once staff and the public have had the chance to be fully vaccinated.

Two  public computers are available for essential use, by reservation.  Call 985-5124 if you'd like to sign up to use a computer.
