As always, thank you for your understanding and patience. And, we DO look forward to seeing you in person – socially distanced, of course!  

Please note – each library in the CC Library System will set their own opening date and hours.

Please continue to return materials in our book drop. For the health and safety of staff and our customers, we are quarantining all returned items for 72 hours before we check them in. When we do check in materials, we will ensure that no fines remain on anyone’s record for those items. Please follow the Do’s and Don’ts outlined in the image here to safely disinfect books at home.
