CCML FAQs

The physical library is open for Summer Hours -- Monday-Friday, 1-6pm -- until August 20, 2021. The following services are available in person, virtually, or both.

We will continue to update these FAQs and applicable web pages and adapt according to needs and feedback. Our hours and services are also subject to change due to changing safety measures, public health guidance and directives. As always, we will update the CCM community on significant changes via email, the CCM Library web site and LiBlog posts.
