Our Pop In/Pick Up holds service is expanding to more locations and adding hours at several sites. Get the latest on this and other updates on the Library's COVID-19 response on this page.
Even now, with our physical locations temporarily closed, you can access the Library from anywhere, anytime – through our Digital Branch. It offers a vast collection of materials that can be read in a web browser, download to a mobile device, or streamed online. All for free.
