Dole Branch to remain closed

Dole Branch, because of its even smaller square footage and lower safe occupancy numbers, will remain closed at this time. We will continue to monitor closely factors such as the local infection rate and the completion of vaccinations of library staff members to determine when in-person services will resume.
