Is my library open?

Due to COVID-19, our libraries have modified some services, such as offering virtual programming or browsing by appointment. Nearly all of our 65 libraries are currently serving as pick-up locations for holds. (Find out more about placing holds here.)

Be sure to contact your local library to get the most up-to-date information about what services they are offering and how to access them.
