Due to a rise in COVID cases, masks are required when visiting the Library building.


The Magazine Reading Room, located on the Second Level, is home to over 275 individual magazines and newspapers. This is a quiet reading area, a lovely spot to browse and read in peace. Comfortable chairs and couches surround a fireplace that is always lit during the cooler months.

Current magazine issues are for in-Library use only, however there is no limit on the number of older issues you may borrow.

Daily issues of the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times are located at the Reference Desk.
