Patrons can correspond via Text to the Library Staff. When the telephone line is busy, send a question to be answered during library hours. This is much more reliable than email. Visit our website for more info. Library Staff will receive your texts and respond during the hours stated. You will receive this response to your text:

"Your message has been received. In response to COVID-19, the library is closed until further notice. The Gilman Library Staff will be available to respond to email or text, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday."

The Library is closed, but you can use our Online Databases
