The health and safety of our library patrons is our top priority. We will be extending due dates and waiving all fines for overdue materials and the Washington Anytime Library will continue to be available for patrons to enjoy from home. We will post updates as soon as they are available.  We will miss our patrons dearly look forward to seeing you all again.

UPDATE!  While the Library remains closed to the public, beginning Monday, June 1st, the outdoor Book Drop will be open to accept returnsDue to the expected volume of returns, we ask that you do not leave items in, or around, the book drop if the door is jammed or appears full.  We also ask that you do not put donations in the book drop or leave them in front of the building.  Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we cannot accept any donations at this time.
