Library Closings in April

The library will be closed on Friday, April 18th for a day of staff training.

We will also close on Sunday, April 20th in observance of Easter.

While our library building will be closed, book drops will remain open. Our website and online resources will be available as well. Now might be the perfect time to try out a downloadable ebook or to stream a movie via IndieFlix.

As the year comes to an end, Eisenhower will be closing in observance of the winter holidays. We'll be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as well as New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.  Have a great and safe holiday and we'll see you in the next year.
