Many patrons have reached out to ask when the Marion Public Library will reopen. Libraries are part of the NYS Department of Education and are currently in Phase 4.
Library staff and the Board of Trustees are working hard to ensure that we have needed supplies, policies, and guidelines in place to reopen safely. Target dates are dependent on the curve and case numbers in phases 1-3. Our reopening is projected to be late June to early July. Services will be limited with social distancing in place. Please continue to check our website for updates.
We miss you! Please stay healthy, follow the guidelines from Wayne County Department of Health, and keep flattening that curve.2 comments
The Library book drop is closed. Patrons are encouraged to keep their library items at home until normal library operations resume. The due dates on library materials have been extended to June 30, 2020. If necessary, this date will be pushed back so no fines accrue due to library closures.
With concern for the health of patrons, staff, and the greater community, the library will be closed until further notice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision to reopen and resume delivery services will be made with guidance from local and state government agencies.
We would like to provide an update on services: We will not be available to take phone calls personally, but will periodically check voicemails. We promise to continue to be there for you through our online outlets such as Facebook and our website, www.marionlib.org.
