The Livingston County Library will remain closed until further notice due to the Coronavirus

pandemic. Candice Warren, executive director of the Livingston County Library said the Board of Trustees will determine at the April 16 board meeting when the library will be reopening.

“This decision has been made considering all the best advice from federal, state, and local public health officials,” Warren added.

Due dates of all materials that were due to return during this time period have been extended so

access to accounts will not be denied for overdue materials. The library asks patrons not return materials during the closure period and to not return materials in the book drop at this time.

While the physical library is closed, the public is encouraged to access the online databases and downloadable content. Available online are: eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, research material, movies, music and genealogy materials. Visit www.livingstoncountylibrary.org to find these materials. The Wi-Fi hours have been extended to 5 a.m. through 10 p.m.

“Anybody wishing to have access to Wi-Fi should be able to get signal in their vehicles along the east and west side of the building,” Warren said,

The best way to reach staff during this time is via email at:

Service Questions-librarian@livingstoncountylibrary.org; Adult Services-monica@livingstoncountylibrary.org; or Children’s Services-jodi@livingstoncountylibrary.org.

“The Library’s Facebook page is well monitored and questions can be asked there, as well. If patrons have trouble accessing accounts or materials, they can reach out to the above email addresses for help,” Warren added.
