Hand selecting a library book.

11/16/2020

Dear library friends,

Based on local COVID-19 infection rates and the new restrictions added to the state’s “Safe Start” plan, we have determined that the safest, most responsible way for the Jefferson County Library and Bookmobile to serve the community is to return to offering Curbside Holds Pickup only through December 14th, in alignment with the Governor’s revised restrictions.

While we are sad that we cannot continue to invite the public into our facilities to browse, we are hopeful that by participating in a concerted effort to reduce the spread of the virus we will be able to see you in the Library and on the Bookmobile soon. Until then, we will continue to provide contactless curbside holds pickup, email/phone reference services, laptop checkout, wireless printing, and online programs for all ages.

Our Library’s hours of service remain Tuesday–Saturday, 10am–5pm, and the Bookmobile will continue its Monday-Thursday schedule. 

Remember:

  • Our website–jclibrary.info–is your portal to nearly 200,000 books, DVDs, CDs, eBooks, eAudiobooks, streaming videos, and more. Place holds and pick up physical items, or download digital items straight to your device.
  • Library staff can help you find your next favorite book or movie–just call us at 360-385-6544! You can also fill out the Personal Picks form.
  • We offer HomeLibrary delivery services for qualified patrons who are unable to pick up materials through curbside visits. For more information, please contact Mobile Services Manager Celeste Bennett or fill out the online HomeLibrary delivery form.
  • Our online programs are creative and diverse—storytimes, a virtual gingerbread house contest, trivia games, STEAM programs for kids, and more! Find all upcoming programs on our events calendar

Please watch our website at jclibrary.info or follow us on social media to get the latest updates about library services and programs. You can also reach library staff via phone or email, Tuesday-Saturday, 10-5, at: 360-385-6544 or information@jclibrary.info.

Stay safe and healthy,
