Adult Services at the Library

Everything we do for you — inside the library or out…

Homebound Delivery is now available!

If you are unable to come to the library, library staff can select and deliver library items to your home for you.

Our circulation specialists can assist you in many ways at the Circulation Desk. There, you can check materials in and out, pay finesrequest an item through Interlibrary Loan, send and receive faxes. You can also ask for basic computer and copier help, and sign-up for adult programs. Our circulation staff can also answer direct reference questions, help you to find books on our shelves, direct you to other items and services in the library, and take applications for and make library cards.
