Services

Here is a sampling of some of our many services:

Express Pick-Up Window

The Express Pick-up Window allows you to pick up library materials without leaving your car. In order to ensure an "express" experience for everyone, please observe the following: (1) You must call at least a half hour in advance to arrange for items to be waiting for you at the window; (2) you must have your library card with you; (3) no homebound, teacher loans, book boxes, or other large/heavy containers may be picked up at the window; (4) pick-ups are limited to 5 books and 8 DVD's. The Express Pick-up Window is for picking up materials only; items can be returned in the drive-up book and A/V drops, and fines must be paid in the library. All of these procedures were established to make sure that cars move quickly through the Express Window lane, and that lines are few and far between. (Back to Top)

Flash Memory Drives for Sale

The library sells 2 GB flash memory drives at the Circulation desk for $7.50. USB flash drives are more reliable than floppy disks because they have no moving parts and have a more durable design. Floppy disks are highly sensitive to dust, condensation, temperature extremes, static electricity, and magnetic fields. more info(Back to Top)
