The Montfort & Allie B. Jones Memorial Library is closed occasionally throughout the year in observance of various holidays. When a holiday falls on a Saturday, the library will be closed both that Saturday and, per city policy, the preceding Friday. When a holiday falls on a Sunday, the city will be closed the following Monday.
Because the library is always closed on Mondays, Sunday and Monday holidays do not affect the library’s regular operating hours.
