Remote Annex

To provide additional space for patrons and to comply with CDC guidelines around the handling and exchange of library materials, we will be temporarily storing our print collection in our library annex. Materials may be requested for which we have no digital option available. Sign into your Scholar OneSearch account to request delivery from the Remote Annex. Items that may be requested from the Annex will have a blue “Request” button in their records.
