Due to massive demand, the Library is currently out of COVID-19 tests. We expect to receive a supply from the Health Department every two weeks, and will update this site accordingly.

Effective November 22, 2021, masks will be required for all patrons over 2 years of age at all branches of the Ruth Enlow Library. Thank you for your patience and consideration.
