We have made the difficult decision to close the Brewer Public Library until further notice in an attempt to support social distancing and lessen the spread of the coronavirus.
We feel this decision is in the best interest of the library patrons, staff, and the community as a whole.
We will take some time to consider services that we could safely offer and still meet community needs.
Fines will not be assessed during this time and we will extend due dates to May 1st.
Library Wi-Fi will stay on and available for use outside the library building during this time. Also, we urge you to consider utilizing OverDrive or Libby for electronic materials.
As we have new information regarding library hours or services we will update the library website (www.brewerpubliclibrary.wordpress.com) and Facebook page, and notify WRCO and The Richland Observer. During this challenging time it is helpful to keep in mind that we are all in this together and by working together we will pull through successfully.
