Beginning March 16, the Library will be reducing the maximum amount of fees that may be carried on your library card. If you owe more than $5.00, you will not be able to borrow or renew materials until the fees are paid or arrangements made. See more about this change on our Life of the Library Blog. Thank you for your understanding and support.
