• No-Fines Extension

    Until Further Notice

    We know it's strange times, and with our new item quarantine procedures, we want to make sure nobody is penalized for factors out of their control. Until further notice, or until returned items no longer need to be quarantined and the circulation process can get back to normal, we will continue to NOT charge fines. Please be aware, however, that lost fees, lost processing fees, and damaged fees still apply. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding!

  • Mug Life Mondays

    April 12 & 26 May 10 & 24

    Teens, do you ever feel peckish but know you’ll be in trouble if you dirty up the kitchen? Here to save the day are Mug Snacks, tasty favorites like brownies, mac-n-cheese, and cake in a convenient one portion size. The best part is you don’t have to be a Michelin Star Chef to make these, all you need is a microwave and very basic cooking skills! Every other week recipes will be posted on our Facebook page and some pre-bagged dry ingredients will be available at the library.

  • Free Comic Book Day

    Updates

    We've had a lot of questions lately about Free Comic Book Day (FCBD), which usually happens on the 1st Saturday in May. Last year's event was cancelled by the worldwide organizers due to the pandemic: many stores, libraries, and schools were closed then (and publishers too, so comics were temporarily unavailable.) This year, they have moved FCBD to August 14, in the hopes that the pandemic will be under control enough to hold this much loved event.
    We have a small supply of leftover comics we will put out on May 4, but stay "tooned": we hope to be able to have a new batch of comics ordered and in stock for the official celebration on August 14. Please watch for further updates!


Pandemic Reopening Stage 4: The "Grab and Go Library" Imlay Branch

Returned items quarantined and sanitized before check-in

No book or other material donations at this time  
No in-person programs or events

Staff performing additional enhanced cleaning of shared and high touch items

These changes are all related to protecting the health and safety of our staff and visitors during the pandemic. This includes preventing crowding and large numbers of people in enclosed spaces; shortening the time visitors spend in an enclosed public space; and lessening potential exposure to the virus by removing multiple touch points and high frequency touch items (like toys and magazines.) Using masks and sanitizer helps protect everyone who enters shared spaces like the stacks or touches shared items like books and DVD cases.
 
We are sorry about all the restrictions, but happy that we will get to see you in person once again. Hopefully we can keep safely moving forward toward normalcy sometime in the near future.
Thank you for your patience and support during this difficult time!

Elements of the Reopening Stage are subject to change. 
Please see the Reopening Plan available on our website or at the front desk for more details.
