Take a Survey to Help the Arms

Please take our Arms Library strategic planning survey, June 11 through July 10. This will help the Arms Library grow, and better meet the community's needs.

Take the Survey


Almost the entire Arms Library is open! (The exception is the meeting room, unless you are looking for juvenile and young adult graphic novels.)

Visits are limited to 30 minutes. (More than the 20 minutes we had maintained during the pandemic. Hooray!)

We are still asking people to properly wear face coverings, as we have non-vaccinated children using the library. We have masks at the door in case you forget yours.

7 people at a time are allowed in the library at a time.

1 family or pod are allowed in the children's room at a time.

You no longer need to make an appointment!

We are still offering curbside service. Just knock and we will meet you outside.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.

Laurie, Sharin and Rhiannon
