AS OF MONDAY, MARCH 16TH, THE LIBRARY WILL BE TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Due to the ever changing situation concerning the COVID-19 virus, our Board of Trustees has chosen to close the library at this time.   This decision was not reached easily, and was resolved only after working diligently with our municipal government and health department.  We would rather err on the side of caution regarding the safety of our staff and community.

While the library is closed, materials will not be accepted for return or donation.  Please do not leave items on library grounds as staff will be unavailable.  All fines and fees will be waived while we remain closed.  All holds currently waiting for pick-up will remain available for a week after we reopen.  If your card expires during the closed period, privileges will be extended until we reopen and they can be renewed in person.  All meetings and events have been canceled through the end of April.

Access to online and digital resources will remain available for our cardholders.  In addition, we have added many links to websites for children, teens and adults that do not require a library card for use.  Staff are available to answer your questions and concerns via email between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.

WI-FI is available from the parking lot and surrounding grounds – no password is required.

Our status is being evaluated on a day to day basis.  Please check our website or Facebook page frequently for updates as more information becomes available.

The Hamilton Library Board of Trustees, Director and staff thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate through the current crisis.
