Library Closure: COVID-19 Statement & Services

“The Phillips Public Library will be closed beginning at 5pm on Wednesday, March 18.”

3/17/2020

Dear Library Patrons,

Over the past week, we have witnessed unprecedented events unfold. There have been ongoing discussions, planning and decision-making related to mitigating the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Today an emergency meeting of the Phillips Public Library Board was held and the decision to close the Library was made.

The Board did not make this decision lightly, but the health and safety of our patrons and our staff is a priority.

Therefore, the Phillips Public Library will be closed beginning at 5pm on Wednesday, March 18th.

During the closure, our book drop will be closed, and we ask that you NOT RETURN any of the items that you currently have checked out.

If your items are due during the time that we are closed, YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED FINES ON ANY OF THE MATERIALS.

We will begin receiving returns when the school district re-opens. We anticipate re-opening the Library the following week subject to Library Board approval.

Our online resources will be available during the closure, and the building WiFi- which reaches to the parking lot- will remain accessible.

Staff will be responding to your concerns through Facebook and our website (phillipspl.org), so please feel free to contact us. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to take advantage of any online programming or resources we might share, and to get updates concerning the Library re-opening.

 Sincerely,

Rebecca Puhl

Phillips Public Library Director
