7/18/23 UPDATE: The elevator has been fixed and is now operational again. We appreciate your patience during the downtime. All events that were relocated due to the elevator issue will proceed as planned at their new venue.

We regret to inform you that our elevator is out of service until further notice. While services will remain open on the 2nd floor, we understand this will cause an inconvenience for many Library users.

Please know that our staff is ready to assist with retrieving any materials for patrons who cannot use the stairs. In addition, we have public computers, a photocopier, and printing services on the first floor. If you have a reservation for equipment in The Maker Spot and would like to reschedule it, please contact Kori at 817-427-6832 or
