We apologize for the recent disruption of service, and are pleased to report that the power has been restored to the Main Library. We have returned to our normal Monday schedule: the Main Library and Brookfield and Eastmont Branches are now open. All other locations will resume normal operations on Tuesday, January 23. We appreciate the community's support and patience over the past few days.
