Tomorrow morning, in the wee hours of March 21st between 3:00 and 9:00 AM, our catalog will be down while it undergoes some updates. You might notice some changes to the catalog before then. During the downtime, you will be unable to search for library items, place holds, or access your account. We apologize for any inconvenience. Hopefully you'll be asleep then.

This week you'll see some landscapers beginning to work around the library. Some of our trees and shrubs have gotten a bit unruly. They look bad and cause sight line safety issues in the parking lot so they need to be replaced Early fall is a good time to plant because the cooler weather and autumn rains put less stress on young plants. So, please bear with us, this work is going to lead to a beautiful spring.
Open Studio hours in The Workshop this Thursday, November 2nd, have unfortunately been canceled.
