Tenney is maintaining regular hours with the caveats below. We look forward to helping you.

Greetings Bookworms!

All small group meetings are cancelled until further notice: book discussion, Pins & Needle, Scrabble, etc. As more people get vaccinated, we are hoping to gather again. If Spring really does come, groups can meet outdoors again. We have hopes!
Browsing/hang out time will be limited to 15 to 30 minutes while we are dealing with the pandemic.
You may call ahead with the names of items you wish to borrow and the Librarian will have them ready for you when you come in.
