The Downtown Library will be closed for maintenance Monday, June 14 – Wednesday, June 16. We hope to reopen on Thursday, June 17. The Downtown book drops will remain open, as will our other library locations. 


All Metro Library locations are now in our "Sit & Stay" stage.  Customers can come in to sit and read or use their device in our socially distanced seating, use a study room, or use one of our public computers. Please wear a mask. Click here for more information.
