            All scheduled programs, public meetings, and community outreach will be cancelled until at least March 30th. The library’s courier service will not be making deliveries and curbside pickup will not be available during this time. Due dates for all items will be extended until one week after the library reopens; items will be tentatively due on April 6th if the library reopens on March 30th. Holds on materials will be suspended and any fines accrued by patrons during this time will be forgiven.
