Appointment Guidelines

Patrons may book a one-hour slot per day in advance to use the library for a particular service, this includes browsing, working on a computer/printing (no headphones will be available), copying, or faxing.

Each reservation is for one person. If there will be multiple people in your visiting party, you must make an appointment for each person, including each child.

Booking an appointment can easily be done here. If you have questions, this video will show you how to book an appointment.

Please be prompt, as we will only be able to keep doors open for 15 minutes after each appointment time and that time will be counted as part of your hour-long appointment.
