The library system has a new automation system now! Just click on "library catalog”. From there you can access your own library account by putting in the barcode number from the back of your library card and putting in the word "userpass” as the password.You will then be prompted to put in a new password of your own choosing. You can do a lot from your account, so feel free to explore. Right now if you should forget your new password, we cannot send it to you via email as the system says, but we encourage you to call either library so that we can reset your password. As time goes by we will be switching more and more to email notices where patrons choose to have them sent.
By the request of many patrons, we will be having "quiet zones” for study and peaceful reading or thought in the computer lab area, at the central study area, and in the genealogy area.

INCLEMENT WEATHER GUIDELINES
Bad weather occasionally forces the library board to close the library. The primary reason for library closure is road conditions. The board does not want people to risk their lives and the lives of others to return items to the library.Closure announcements will be made on the local radio station WBRY and our website. If the library is closed, due dates will be extended to the next working day. Fines are not charged for days that the libraries are closed.
