Our VITA site at Butman-Fish Library will be closed today, Monday, February 16. It is our policy that if the Public School Districts are closed due to weather related conditions; the VITA sites in that district are closed as well. The safety of our volunteers and tax payers is our number one concern. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to have sites open tomorrow.
