PICKAWAY – Pickaway County Library is not closing as of yet but they have made some changes. Here is a statement from the library:

The Pickaway County Library is closely monitoring information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our top priority.

With that in mind, the library is canceling all programs and select services effective Friday, March 13 through at least Monday, April 6. This includes storytimes, meeting room reservations, bookmobile service, and other outreach visits. As a further precaution, we have temporarily removed the toys from our Youth Services Department, and we have removed some seating to encourage social distancing. We are taking additional steps beyond regular practices and cleaning and sanitizing as much as possible.

We are following directives and updates from public health experts such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), and our local Pickaway County Health District. Please stay home and do not visit the library if you are exhibiting signs of the flu or if you are not feeling well.

We invite you to explore everything we have to offer on our website. You can download eBooks and eAudiobooks on Overdrive, stream movies and checkout eBooks and eAudiobooks on Hoopla or Kanopy. If you have questions, please call the library at 740-477-1644 x 227.

The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is evolving daily. We will provide further updates as they become available. For the latest information, please check our website at pickawyalib.org.
