As of January 1, 2019, we are no longer sending library notices via postal mail. (Mailed notices include alerts about holds, due dates, or fines.) This will save staff time and reduce waste - saving more than $18,000 annually. There are several free and easy ways to access your library account. Add an email address to receive email notices, check your account online, or call or visit your local library for assistance.

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a deadly disease transmitted by infected rodents through urine, droppings, or saliva. Humans can contract the disease when they breathe in the virus from the air. In Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome , students will learn about the symptoms of this disease, as well as the effects, treatment, and history of HPS, which was first recognized in 1993 and has since been identified throughout the United States. Although rare, it is potentially deadly, and awareness is the first step toward prevention.
