The Perkins Library staff will be available to receive your calls from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

Anyone calling outside these hours should leave a message, as staff will be regularly checking our voicemail.

Materials will be mailed out twice a week–on Mondays and Thursdays–until we resume a full level of service in accordance with the Governor’s four-phase Return to Work Plan. Because the Perkins Campus continues to remain closed, the Perkins Library will also be closed to the general public until further notice. We will update everyone once the Library can again resume drop-in and public visits.

Thank you for your patience as we do everything we can to expedite a full return to library services while maintaining a safe workplace for all of our staff.
