Leavenworth Public Library

Upcoming Events

Phased in Library Services

The Leavenworth Public Library’s goal is THE MOST SERVICE, THE SAFEST WAY.

 

The Library will remain closed to the public until data reported by the County Health Department shows that the rate of cases, hospitalizations and deaths declines or remains stable for 14 days. Curbside service will continue in the interim.

 

The Board of Trustees has approved a phased-in reopening plan that will be implemented once conditions improve. The Board and staff of the Library want things to get back to normal as much as everyone else. Getting there must be done responsibly with the focus on the the health of employees and library users.

For the time being, patrons can only place holds on material owned by their “home” library. 

 

ITEMS ON YOUR ACCOUNT NOW

Please remember the Leavenworth Public Library wants to get back to normal as much as you do. However, it is vital that the health and safety of patrons and staff is our primary concern.

 

All materials returned through our book drop or delivered by the courier will be set aside for 72 hours before it is checked in, shelved or made available to patrons.

 

If you receive an email about an overdue item, please wait at least 4 days and check your account again. If the item is still on your account after 4 days, call or email the Library.

 

THE LIBRARY IS NOT ACCEPTING ANY DONATIONS OF BOOKS, MAGAZINES, MUSIC CDS OR MOVIE DVDS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
