Don't Worry! We are waiving all late fines at this time!

We are (re)open!

We have officially reopened our doors to the public! We ask that anyone that comes in the building wear a mask if they are able. All patrons young and old are invited to come on in!

We are processing Inter-Library Loans again, too! This means you can place a hold on any item available in our system, not just items held by RVDL.

The Book Return is open 24/7. Feel free to return your items anytime day or night. The returned items will be quarantined for 3 days and will be checked in on the 4th day. Items will still be listed on your card while they are in quarantine. We will be waiving all late fines during this time as well.
