The Library is closed today because of the weather. The snow is still coming down and it is covering big patches of ice; very slippery. Be careful out there.
Library Closed Today: the Franklin Library will be closed today because of the snowstorm. We hope to have the snow cleared by tomorrow morning so that we can open for regular hours (Saturday 10:00 – 1:00).
