GPL Closed

To Our Patrons:

It is with a heavy heart that the Garrett Public Library announces that it will be ceasing normal operational activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have not yet set a date in which we will return to normal operational activities. While we respect that many of our patrons depend on us for information, we are concerned that we cannot provide this service to you safely. We wish to keep everyone that works here, their families, and importantly, our patrons and their families safe.

Any items that are checked out have had their due dates extended. All late fees during this time will be forgiven. Our digital resources, including eBooks, magazines, and audiobooks will remain available through Libby and Overdrive. Most of our online databases will also still be available, including Auto Repair Reference Center, Consumer Reports, Inspire, Rocket Languages, and Small Engine Repair Reference Center.

The south entrance will be open on scheduled e-learning days from noon until 6pm. Those days would be 3/18, 3/19, 3/31, 4/1, 4/2, 4/7, and 4/8. This is intended to give internet access to students who need it. Other community volunteers may be available during these times to help serve community members with their pressing needs.

We are deeply sorry for this inconvenience, but the library is committed to keeping its staff, and its community safe and healthy. We will open our doors ready to resume normal activities as soon as we feel it is safe to do so.

Regards, GPL Staff
