We cannot offer any services nor allow the public inside the building at this time due to current state restrictions; we are not offering copier, computer or printing services, access to collections, archival research, or meeting spaces. Statewide delivery, including all inter-library loan and hold requests from other libraries, have not resumed at this point therefore, only requests from the Chelsea collection can be filled.
