Everyone can access items in Overdrive and Libby while the library is closed. Expired card holders and patrons with fines or fees above the threshold limit can continue to use Overdrive at this time.
If you're worried about internet access while the library is closed, we will be leaving our public WiFi on and accessible throughout our closure. If you get close to the building, you will be able to access the WiFi. Our WiFi is named NLPL Public, and no password is required.
Comcast has also announced free access to all local XFINITY Wifi Hotpots and 60 days of free internet access for low-income households by request.

Starting March 2, Overdrive will be offering Hold Redeliveries. If you are not ready to read a book when your hold becomes available, you'll be able to choose “deliver later,” which sends the book to the next person waiting. After that person is done reading, the book will be sent to you again.

The Census, conducted once every 10 years, is the constitutionally-required count of every person living in the United States. Census data are used to make decisions about how and where to spend more than $800 billion each year for programs and services that communities rely on, such as schools, roads, hospitals, libraries, and other public services.
Most households will receive their Census materials by U.S. mail or hand-delivery starting in mid-March. The online and telephone response options will be available March 12, 2020. By April 1, 2020, you will receive an invitation to participate in the Census.
