COVID-19 Information

Your Garfield County Libraries care deeply about the health and safety of our community and we are actively monitoring information in relation to COVID-19. Learn about what the libraries are doing in response to the virus as well as find links to reliable health organizations.



Libraries Closed

All Garfield County Libraries are closed through April 30. 

As we are part of the local and global community, it is important to understand that this is the time to discourage public gatherings. We take our responsibility for the health and well-being of our community seriously. We are all working together to stay healthy. Minimizing social contacts will help slow the spread of this virus.


Events & Meeting Room Usage

All library in-person classes and events as well as all meeting room reservations are cancelled through at least April 30.

Some events will be rescheduled to a virtual format and be held on different platforms including YouTube, Zoom, and Facebook Live. See individual event information for details.


Borrowed Books, Fines, and Returns

All library book drops will be closed during the closure, and there will be no overdue fines during this time. Please hold on to your library materials until further notice.



All holds that are currently at the library will remain in the building, and will be available once we reopen. You can still use your library card to place holds on additional books and materials but those holds will not be filled until after we reopen.
