Planning Your Visit

The library is open to the public from 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and closed for Federal holidays.  We have electrical outlets for laptops and free wi-fi for your use, but there are no computers available for public internet access. Storage lockers are available for use, free of charge. Before you visit, please familiarize yourself with our collection use policy.
