COVID – 19 Updates and Information

UPDATE AS OF 3-15-20
Just a note – I’m encouraging all patrons to not linger in the library. Come, get your materials and continue on. We love you all, but minimal social interactions are being encouraged. ❤️

Did you know you can create a bookbag in our Online Catalog and we can have it ready for you? To log into our Online Catalog, your library card number is your username and your password is your last name, all lower case. This can help in shortening visits. We will check the holds and process them each morning at 10 am.

A Post from the Director:
This is the information for the library at this time. Keep in mind that this is an ever changing situation and things may change quickly. This post will be pinned at the top of our page and noted when there are updates.

As of now, the library has no plans to close. We are open our regular hours Monday – Saturday.

If you do not wish to come into the library but have materials at home there are options available to you. You can call the library 402-764-7681 to renew books and other materials. Also, feel free to drop off items in the drop box.
