Library Is Open

The library is open for checkout of materials and internet use.

Library hours are Tuesday-Friday 10AM-7PM and Saturday 11AM-4PM.

Patrons are encouraged to wear masks, maintain social distance, and only stay as long as it takes to obtain the services they need, with a maximum stay of 1 hour.

You can still check out library materials with curbside service

We can not request items from other libraries at this time,

but if we have it here on our shelf, you are welcome to check it out.

If you have been sick or exposed to someone who is ill, please stay home.

If you or any of your contacts have traveled outside the state,

please wait the required 14 days before coming to see us.

Minor children may not be unattended in the library.

We know that these new rules do not allow for all the social aspects of our community space and we, like you, hope that doesn’t last very long. At this time however, our priority is to keep our patrons safe and healthy while providing necessary services.

We are excited to re-open and hope to see you at the library!

Sutton Youth

Youth

As to be expected, this summer’s teen program will look a little different in accord with COVID-19 prevention guidelines. This summer’s teen program will be limited to a group number of twelve. The group will meet twice weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning

June 3rd from 10am-2pm.

Limiting group number will make this program possible while encouraging community interaction and prioritizing health and safety of teens and staff.  Registering for the program will be a first come, first serve signup.  Depending on the development of guidelines over these next few months, there will be the possibility of an end of the summer trip. We will update you all as soon as we know. That being said, we are still prepared for a fun summer! Just a glimpse into the next few months include: Tie-Dye, Gardening, Bike trips to Granite Creek, Yoga, and possibly a teen theatre production about our new Quarantine lifestyle.

Join us for a fun-filled summer!
