Building and Neighborhood Guide

When assigned you will receive a building and neighborhood guide via email which, in addition to providing you with information about our facilities, is a directory to a variety of neighborhood resources including local banks, dry cleaners, grocery stores, shoemakers and video stores.

There are no borrowing privileges at either library for summer residents.

Your May assignment letter will include your mailing address. Please note that no mail or packages can be accepted for any resident not formally checked-in; and no mail or packages will be accepted for anyone other than licensees and adult family members listed on family housing applications.
