News Release

For immediate release - March 16, 2020

Limited reopening and/or curbside service available

Limited reopening & curbside service 
 
Our libraries are observing limited reopening and/or curbside service,
depending on the location. Some libraries are not accepting item
donations at this time. Please call a library location for the latest
details. Our delivery service, Books By Mail is available for
those who are disabled and cannot physically visit the
library to get library items.

As of August 17, 2020, patrons must return items to an
open library by their due date to avoid fees. All previous
fines and fees will remain.

Patrons may sign in to their online account or contact
an open library to renew items. An item may only be
renewed if no other patrons have put a hold request
on the item.

All library items are cleaned and quarantined for 48 hours
before checkout, as recommended by REALM
(REopening, Archives, Libraries, and Museums).

Please do not use any cleaning agents on library materials
as they can be damaged beyond repair. If an item is returned
damaged, the patron will be charged for the cost of the item.

Though we are taking additional precautions, please note
this is not a gurantee of your safety.

Many locations have new hours and reduced patron capacity
during their limited reopening. Contact a library for details.
