Getting a Library Card and Borrowing Policies

There is two-hour surface and street parking on the east, west and north sides of the library.  A small number of two-hour underground parking spaces are available in the public parking lot located under the Library and accessible from Emery St. on the Library's east side.

Lost and Found Items

The Library has a Lost and Found located at the Circulation Desk. If we are able to identify the owner of the lost item (e.g. wallet, keys, etc.), we contact the patron and hold the item at the Circulation Desk. Unidentified items are kept for 30 days and then donated to local shelters.
