New Quarantine Period for Returned Materials

A recent study that found the coronavirus is undetectable on books and other library materials after three days. With this new information, we’ve begun extending the quarantine period for all returned items to three days! This means your items will not be checked in until after 72 hours. Please note that we will not be charging overdue fines on returned items during the pandemic.
