Attention McCowan Memorial Library Patrons:
In the interests of honoring our responsibilities to our
patrons in the face of the Coronavirus, we have made the decision to suspend
the checkout of our Museum Passes effective immediately. We plan to resume the Museum Pass Program on
May 1st, but reserve the right to extend the suspension as
circumstances require. We will honor any
pass reservations that have already been made.
This measure is purely precautionary, but we feel is in the best
interests of our community at this time.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Our next McCowan Memorial Library Book Club meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 17th at 7:00 pm. New members are always welcome! Our March book selection is "Grant" Chapters 1-12 by Ron Chernow. Extra copies of the book are available for reserve at the library. If you've already read it, we would love to have you join the discussion. Bring a friend!
