WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED! In order to protect our patrons and staff, we will be quarantining all returned books for 72 hours (3 days) BEFORE we check them in so they will stay on your record for those extra three days after you put them in the book drop.
PLEASE DON’T WORRY! We are not charging fines for the foreseeable future and if we make a mistake, please call and let us know. Stay safe! We REALLY hope to see you soon.
