Edythe Dyer Library

The library will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 24th and 25th for Thanksgiving. 

We are happy to welcome patrons into the library for browsing! Masks are not required, but always welcome.

We have lockers for after-hours pickup.
Call us to arrange these–you’ll need to know which locker and be given a combination.
