Books can be picked up between the hours of 9:00 am till 2:00 pm Monday thru Friday.

You can have the books for 2 weeks.

If you finish sooner you can return them and pick new ones. There will be a grey bin outside of the office doors marked “Library Books”. Place your books in there and make sure the lid is on.
The bin will be outside Monday – Friday only between 9:00 and 2:00 pm.
