Severe Weather Policy

With the impending storms for today, we are posting our severe weather policy.

During severe storms or tornadoes the library will monitor the weather closely. If time to evacuate we will go to the Methodist Church at 5th and Walnut unless there is time to close the library. If no time to evacuate we will go to the bathroom on the children’s side or one of the storerooms.

Please stay safe and tune in to your weather radio, local radio stations, or local television stations for current weather updates.
