U.S.P.I.S. Shred Day

The library is teaming up with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) to host a document shred event on Tuesday, March 4, from 10:00 AM- 3:00 PM. Bring up to four boxes (approximately 300 lbs.) of personal documents, like old tax returns and other sensitive materials, to be shredded free of charge. Please remove large binder clips from documents; paper clips and staples are allowed. While your documents are being shredded, learn about various fraud schemes and how to protect yourself. The shredder will be in the parking lot on the west side of the building. Pull around the drive in your vehicle and follow directional arrows. This event is for personal document shredding only.

Construction Progress Update

Seating AreaFriday we received the delivery of most of the remaining furniture pieces. Seating units, some with built-in power ports, are being installed, as are end tables and lighting.

Our service desk is fully functional and the new self-service area is up and running. This area includes 2 copy/print machines, 6 self-checkout machines and a self-service fax, as well as a small work area.

This leaves just a few punch list items to complete and some finishing touches like signage and the delivery of a couple small tables. We are happy to report that this project is on schedule and within budget. Our PSIP page has complete information.

Library Closed February 3 & 4

The library will be closed on Monday, February 3 and Tuesday, February 4 as contractors begin demolition for our Patron Service Improvement Project (PSIP). Storytimes scheduled for this day are canceled; all online resources are available, including databases, MyAccount, Zinio, hoopla and Overdrive eBooks and audiobooks.
