During this time of uncertainty regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), the C.C. Mellor Memorial Library is taking steps to keep our staff, patrons, and community safe.

CCM Edgewood and CCM Forest Hills are closed, and will remain closed until directed by authorities to reopen.

Because this is such a rapidly evolving situation, CCM will continue to monitor the CDC's recommendations and consult with the appropriate professionals to ensure the health and safety of all. Please monitor our website and social media channels for updates.

We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to continuing to serve you.

CCM will be sending out a weekly email newsletter while we are closed, with information about library services, programs, and more.

Library Items

Please keep all library materials during the closure. Any items returned to CCM Edgewood's book drop will not be checked in until the library reopens.
