After the most recent urging from the Governor to Stay Safe and Stay Home, Brownell has stopped all library operations. The book drop is closed for the time being, so please keep your items (books, DVDs, etc.) at home. There are no overdues being sent out at this time, and we never charge fines for late items. Leaving items outside of the library will result in the item being charged to the patron account. 

If you are still in need of reading materials please check out Libby or Overdrive for downloadable books and audio books:

For Village residents, we can even offer a temporary virtual card which will provide access to these services for the duration of our closure. For a virtual card contact the library by phone, email, by filling out this online form

You can also still catch our digital programming on our website program calendar, just select the event for details and the meeting link to log on:

If you need help using any of these services, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We will also be checking voicemail periodically, and you can leave us a message at 878-6955.

We will also continue to share information on Facebook. 

Be well,
Brownell Staff
