Trails Regional Library to Close All Branches Due to COVID-19

For Immediate Release

March 16, 2020

The unprecedented COVID-19 health crisis is changing daily life for everyone. The evidence points to early social distancing helping to slow the spread of the virus.
As we have reviewed the information from public health officials and in response to the confirmed case of COVID-19 in our surrounding county, Trails Regional Library has made the difficult decision to close our branches to the public effective Monday March 16th at 1 p.m. through Sunday, April 5.
Trails Regional does not charge any overdue fines and all checkout periods will be extended through April 10. All pending holds will be frozen so you will keep your place in line when we re-open. We ask that patrons ABSOLUTELY DO NOT return materials; all book drops are locked. Please keep all library materials at home. You will not be penalized.
As always, our broad collection of digital resources like ebooks, audiobooks, music, movies, and databases are available 24/7. We will be increasing digital download capabilities for hoopla and OverDrive during this time and we encourage all to utilize these options.
We commit to keeping you informed and will regularly update the Library website. This was not a decision the Library made lightly. We appreciate the support of our staff, our customers and our community during this challenging time. 

We are committed to continuous communication to keep our staff and communities informed if and when any of our services, hours, or programs change. Please monitor our website for the most up-to-date information.
