Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd

The Library will be closed except for voting. 

The Library is a polling place for several election districts, and since it is a presidential election year, large crowds are to be expected. In the interest of the safety of patrons, voters and staff, the library will be open only for those who are assigned to it as a polling place. A mask is required. Polls are open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
