We are returning to normal hours to better serve our patrons. During the pandemic, we slowly expanded our hours since reopening, to ensure the safety of our staff and patrons. At this point, we have taken additional precautions in our building, such as adding plexiglass and placing spacing stickers on the floor. 

Given those precautions, the fact that our staff has finally had the opportunity to become vaccinated, and the lower case counts, we felt that it was the right time to return to normal hours. When people visit, they can expect to see our staff wearing masks but they will still be able to access many of our helpful resources, including checking out items, public computers, printing/copying, and more. 
While we are not yet able to open up all of our rooms for public use, we do still allow people to make appointments to use some of our glass study rooms. We encourage our patrons to utilize the self-check out machines when they prepare to check out their books, movies, audiobooks, and CDs but they may also check out at the desk if needed. For those who wish to still utilize the option, we continue to provide curbside service for picking up items placed on hold. Patrons may place items on hold through our catalog or by calling the library at 870-935-5133. We recommend that patrons continue wearing masks while in the building.
