The Darwin R. Barker Library will be closed starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020, until further notice.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our patrons, staff, and community. We appreciate your understanding.

Please stay tuned for updates as the situation evolves. Stay safe everyone!

Keep Calm and Wash Your Hands!

In an effort to minimize the likelihood of spreading the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be taking extra precautions at the Library. We always sanitize every computer and public surfaces on a daily basis. We will increase this to several times a day. If you are concerned, please ask us and we will sanitize an area for you. Hand sanitizer is always available (while supplies last).

Due to the seriousness of this illness for certain vulnerable populations, we ask that you stay home should you or a family member experience any cold or flu symptoms.
