Library Temporarily Closed until October 27 2020 due to COVID 19


Closed Monday, October 12 through Monday, October 26, 2020


Your health is important to us. Per guidance from the Ottawa County Health Department, the library is closed, staff are quarantining themselves and the building is undergoing sanitizing. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. While the risk to those who visited the library recently is low, those who develop symptoms are encouraged to seed medical guidance.

All materials on the hold shelf will still be waiting for you when we reopen and will remain there until Wednesday, November 4, 2020.

Please do not try to return library materials at this time. We have sealed our return bins. All due dates have been extended to Tuesday, October 27, 2020 and you won't be fined for overdue items.

Thanks for your patience as we work hard to serve you once again!
