Weather Related Closings

"If the weather outside is frightful", the library's policy is to follow the Oakfield School District.  In general, if the schools are closed, the library will also be closed.  The exception would be if the weather improves by the afternoon, the library may keep its regular hours.

Check our Facebook page and website for up-to-date information.
