Pine Public Library is Closed in Response to COVID-19

Library Patrons:

Thank you all for your support and patience during this unprecedented time as we continue to evaluate the situation related it the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The safety or our staff, volunteers, and community is our highest priority. As a cautionary measure, we have closed the library.

This decision was not made lightly. We know our libraries are critical resources for information and internet access, distance education, youth literacy, and connections to other government resources such as the 2020 census. However, as we are part of the local and global community, it is important to understand that this is the time to discourage public gatherings. We take our responsibility for the health and well-being of our community seriously. We are all working together to stay healthy. Minimizing social contacts will help slow the spread of this virus. We understand that developments regarding COVID-19 are changing frequently.  As things change, we suggest you follow the website, and we will post updates on our Facebook page (Pine Public Library) as we get them.

Library book drops will be open, but patrons may keep library materials until libraries reopen. Due dates of checked out materials will be extended and holds will be retained at the library until libraries reopen. The library’s databases, online magazines, and downloadable audiobooks and eBooks are also accessible 24/7 with a library card. 

All Activities with the PINE LIBRARY “FRIENDS” will be canceled until further notice.

More detail will be forthcoming. We are thankful to you – our library patrons – for your continued understanding and support, and encourage you to keep yourselves and your families, friends, and neighbors safe by following the suggested health guidelines.
