I want to express my gratitude to you all for your continued patience and support during this trying time for our community.
After much discussion, the library has been called upon to support our School District, Township, and State in their efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Effective Sunday, March 15, 2020, the library will close to the public. This decision was made in partnership with the Library Board of Trustees and Township Officials.
We realize that many in our community rely on the library and the services we provide. This closure does not mean a total interruption of library service. Although closed to the public, staff will be permitted in the building and will be available to answer questions or assist our residents by telephone or email. In addition, we will continue to provide the many digital services you have come to love, such as e-books, e-audiobooks, digital subscriptions to newspapers and magazines, streaming movies, TV, music, and more.
For those of you who have library materials in your possession, do not fear the due date. You do not need to return materials until we are back in full operation. We will not charge any overdue fees for items due during the time that we are closed.
We will continue to communicate with you as our response to this public health emergency evolves. We look forward to welcoming you back into our building when we are able to reopen. Until then, visit us at www.scotlib.org to take advantage of our many digital resources.
Michelle Willis, Library Director
