Due to the Library’s closure during the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual budget vote and trustee election scheduled for April 7, 2020, was cancelled. The Library Board of Trustees has decided that there will be no increase in Library taxes for the coming fiscal year due to the hardship and financial impact of the pandemic on our community. The trustee election is planned for September 15, 2020.

Please look to the running ticker at the top of the page for any updates. The North Shore Public Library staff has organized many virtual programs and online resources/links to offer Library patrons until we reopen with full services.
