Library Services Temporarily Paused

In-person library services are temporarily paused until June 14 while we move our collections into the expanded portion of our new facility.  

  • Phone and printing service will be unavailable. We will answer email and Facebook inquiries as time allows. 
  • Digital resources remain available. 
  • Holds trapped for our patrons by other libraries during this time period will be stored at the Bridges Library System office and delivered when we reopen. 
  • DO NOT return items while we are closed. 

We will distribute information on what to expect regarding our reopening as it gets closer. Thank you for being patient during this transition period!

There is a new book out at our Storybook Trail at Brandt Quirk Park! Enjoy the beautiful weather and read “Otis” by Loren Long.

Some things you can expect to see in the coming months include weekly storytimes, teen programs and children’s programs; adult book club; and a storyteller. Programs will take place at Clark Park (except storytime, which will be at Brandt Quirk Park). Check out our Facebook page or online event calendar for details!
