The community and the library staff members are our primary concern. With the growing Coronavirus pandemic and further recommendations from Governor Beshear and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, the Calloway County Public Library will close its building to the public starting Monday, March 16th through Sunday, March 29th.
The library takes shutting its doors to the public very seriously. With a consensus from the library board of trustees, the decision was made to close the library to ensure both the health and safety of its staff as well as Calloway County residents.
Because the library will not be open to the public, all programs, meeting room reservations, and other services available when physically visiting the library are suspended.
All due dates for items will be extended while the library is closed and all late fees will be waived. Members may hold on to the items they have checked out until the library reopens.
With the shutdown, members will no longer be able to checkout physical items. However, the library does offer an extensive online services that can be used with just a library card, computer/mobile device, and internet connection. Just go to callowaycountylibrary.org for more details.
We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause and hope the pandemic situation improves rapidly. Please watch the library’s website at callowaycountylibrary.org or Facebook page for more announcements. Library administrators are continually monitoring the situation as it develops and will update the public on further information on the shutdown of our facility based on the recommendations from the state and local authorities.
