Important to note:

  • Do not return ANY items to book drops including lucky day, museum pass, and internet on the go devices. Keep all items until further notice. ALL fines will be waived.
  • NO fines will accrue during the Library’s closure. 
  • All due dates for all items, including already late items, will be extended for 4 weeks. Keep your items – read that book a second time, watch that movie 4 more times, enjoy your extra time with your checked out materials. For example, if you have items that would have been due on Monday, March 16, their due dates will be extended until April 13.
  • All holds will be maintained on shelves until April 20. Don’t worry about freezing holds, we will hold them for you.

Important to note, this is a temporary closure for the time during which there is potential risk of community transmission of COVID-19. The Library System appreciates the support of our community members during this time. Any questions or concerns about these temporary changes should be directed to Auger via email at or phone (908) 458.8401.
