We are pleased to announce that starting June 1st we will be moving into even more “normalcy” than you have seen in the last few months.


To start with, per CDC recommendations and the most recent lifting of State orders, masks are now “recommended for non-vaccinated individuals”. We will no longer be asking for recent exposure or symptom information at the front door, including checking for a fever. However, please remember our continued responsibility for the safety of those in our community who are not able to get vaccinated (those with larger underlying health issues) or those who desire to have the vaccination but have not yet had the opportunity to do so (primarily community members under the age of 18). According to the latest research, there are still not enough case studies to truly determine whether or not vaccinated individuals can spread the virus to the non-vaccinated.


You will notice that our “Do Not Enter if Sick” signs are still posted at the front doors. We would like to strongly encourage everyone to self-monitor for symptoms of any illness, and if you are not feeling well or have a fever then please stay home. We know that a good movie or book can be a comfort when you are under the weather, so we will continue to offer curbside service if you feel you need something to occupy your time while ill. Please take advantage of this!


Finally, we have now resumed normal library operating hours and some services:

10am – 7pm Monday – Thursday

10am – 5pm Friday

10am – 3pm Saturday


Our Community Meeting Room is open for group use, our bathrooms are now available for public use, and the inside book drop may be used for ease of material returns. We will continue to sanitize all returns and spaces indefinitely. Again, thank you all for your continued understanding and patience as we navigate these dynamic times.


As always, if you have any questions then please contact the library at (970)533-7600. We are excited to see you! 

The small conference room will be available for reservations upon opening of the library. The large conference room will be off limits for quarantine. 

Rooms may be reserved up to six months in advance. If your plans change, please contact us to cancel the reservation or cancel it HERE if you have your confirmation number.
