Library Now Open Full Hours on Both Floors

The library is now open with full access to materials on both levels. In order to protect the youngest among us who cannot be vaccinated, masks are required in the library at all times for those over 2 years old.

We are now open our usual pre-Covid hours:
Mon-Thurs: 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Fri-Sat: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

We are keeping some of the services we started in 2020, including personalized grab bag service, grab-and-go craft kits, and self-serve holds pickup. When you visit, you may notice some changes to the layout of furniture and shelving. We hope you will enjoy these efforts to make the library collections more accessible and the layout more welcoming. Thank you for your patience and welcome back, Winfield!
