      Once we have PPE for staff we will be able to open the book drop for returns – current target is June 15. We will announce it here on our website and on our social media and through the Town’s Daily Press release. No items are due until JULY 1 2020. No overdue fines will be charged. Please hold onto your Library items. As there is no delivery at the moment, we encourage you to return items checked out in Grafton back to Grafton, rather than driving out of town to a library opening sooner, as our items won’t make it back to GRAFTON until delivery resumes statewide. Thanks for your patience and understanding! We miss you!
