Winter Weather Updates

snowflakeWinter weather is just around the corner—how will you know if the library is open during a storm? Contrary to what many believe, the library does not follow the public school schedule. The best way to find out if we're open is by checking our Facebook page. If possible, we will also update our website. In the event of an inclement weather closing, all library events, including after-hours events, will be cancelled.

Our Winter Weather Policy has just been updated and can be read online, as a PDF.
