HEADS UP!! Seriously.

HEADS UP!!!   The library slate roof is being repaired and our main entrance may not always be accessible for safety reasons.   We are making the back/side door available (it is not ADA compliant) … on the OPPOSITE side of the building from the street…around all those bushes.  The outdoor book drop will also not be available if unsafe.  Watch for signs and safety tape indicating that the front door is CLOSED, otherwise enter as you normally would.
