IMPORTANT CHANGE EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 24TH 2020
In order to do our part in slowing the community spread of Covid-19, Treat Memorial Library will be returning to curbside service ONLY starting Tuesday, November 24th . Curbside service for pick-up of books and other library materials will be available Tuesdays, Wednesday, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Log into your account, reserve available items, and we will call you to make an appointment for pick up. You may also call the library to reserve. For those who prefer browsing, curbside menus will also be available to help with your book selection. Staff will also be available to assist with printing, copies, and faxing through curbside. Inter-library loan services will also still be available. This is a sad decision to have to make, but the safety of the community is top priority right now. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Please call 897-3631 if you have any questions. Please be safe and well!
