This Week at Your Library
April 30, 2020
Due to concerns over COVID-19 and for the safety and well-being of our communities, the Crook County commissioners have closed county facilities until further notice. Even though the doors are closed at the county libraries, library staff will still be working. Services still available include:
• Curbside delivery of books, magazines, DVD’s, CD audio books and tax forms (please call 283-1006 and staff will gather items requested and bring to you in the parking lot)
• Overdue fines are suspended for the duration and due dates are extended to May 15
• Free wireless internet is available outside the building in the parking lot and on the north side
• Digital resources are available at home if you have a library card -- you can call the library to get your card number and PIN if you need it.
We are cleaning!! That means we are also discarding fiction and non-fiction books, DVDs and CD books that have not been checked out in several years. When the weather cooperates, we will have two book trucks out front of the library full of discarded items. Please stop by and take as many as you would like for your home library! Some of the books would also be perfect for that craft project you’ve always wanted to do but never had time for!
