Due to concerns over the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ohio County Public Library is closed until further notice, effective Sunday, March 15, 2020. The announcement comes after discussions between the OCPL Board of Trustees and OCPL Director, Dottie Thomas.
"Along with federal, state, and local agencies, the Ohio County Public Library has been closely monitoring the evolving situation involving COVID-19," said Director Dottie Thomas. "The safety and well-being of our staff and patrons are our primary concern, and we believe that closing the libraries at this time is the best way to meet that goal."
Though the Library will be closed to the public starting Monday, March 16, 2020, staff will report as usual Monday morning. Book returns will, for the time being, be accepted through the book drop, though late fees for overdue books will be waived for the duration of the closure. All events, classes, and public meeting room reservations are canceled until further notice.
We encourage you to frequently check for updates on this rapidly changing public health issue via our website, our smartphone app (OCPL Connect – available on iPhones and Android devices), and our Facebook page.
