THE LIBRARY IS IN PHASE TWO = Limited Hours and Services, Open for Browsing and Checkout ONLY

Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Phase Two

Beginning Monday, September 21

The library building will be open for browsing and check out only.

Due to the increased risk level from minimal to moderate as set forth by the Eastern Idaho Public Health Department and Madison County our services are limited.

Masks are highly recommended. Seating will be unavailable until the risk level decreases.

Computer use will be limited to 30 minutes per day.

If the risk level increases from moderate to high or the local school districts close due to Covid, it will be necessary to return to curbside service only. 

Please help us keep our doors open by limiting your time and exposure in the building.  

Our current hours:

 Monday & Tuesday: 9 am – 5 pm
Wednesday & Thursday: 12 pm – 8 pm
Friday: 10 am – 6 pm
