Library Announcement

Dear Community,

In response to the developing situation surrounding Coronavirus COVID-19, the Library Board will be meeting today Monday, March 16, 2020 and will be voting to close the Library through March 30, 2020. This decision is not being taken lightly and as a Library, we must decide how we can best serve our community during this time. We feel it is in our patrons’ and staff’s best interest to close the Library and help promote social distancing.

We will have more information to share with everyone in the coming days about a curb side service.

The Library will be closed after 8 p.m. tonight, Monday.

Don’t worry about returning library items and due dates –we will take care of renewing items.

We will be offering curbside pickup for items that have been placed on hold. More information will follow in the next day or two on this service and how it will work.

Our staff will still be able to assist you by phone or email during the following hours (M-F, 9am-5pm) 217-342-2464 and info@effinghamlibrary.org

We have lots of great online resources (books/audiobooks, streaming TV, music & movies, web courses, etc.) available with your library card. Learn more: www.effinghamlibrary.org/digital-content/

Thank you for your understanding,

Amanda McKay
Library Director
