Emergencies or catastrophes, including, but not limited to, extreme weather, utility failure, bomb threat, fire, explosion, or terrorism may require closing the Library.
The primary consideration in any emergency or catastrophe is the safety of all persons in the building and on the property. The Library cooperates fully with public safety departments and emergency service providers.
In order to provide the best service, the Library is open for scheduled service whenever possible. The Library is, however, concerned about the safety of its employees and patrons. During extreme weather situations, the Director may close the Library. If the Director is not available, the Professional or Supervisor in charge may make the decision to close the Library.
The Board President, Police Department 988-5200 (x491), Municipal Administration (x230), and Building Maintenance x(285) will be notified at the time of any closings.
