McDonald County Library Temporarily Closes in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic


 In an effort to be proactive in protecting the health and safety of our patrons, staff, and community during the COVID-19 outbreak, the McDonald County Library is closing beginning 4pm March 17, 2020 until further notice.

The decision was difficult to make.  We care deeply about being available for our community members, recognizing that the Library and its services are invaluable; however we feel this is the responsible thing to do at this time.  Closings are inevitable, and the longer we delay, the less benefit is derived.  We hope that this decision – and similar action being taken by other organizations – will maximize the benefits of recommended social distancing.

The Library’s administrative team will continue to monitor developments and respond accordingly.  Follow us on Facebook and check our website for updates.

Patrons still can access the Library’s digital resources, including e-books, e-magazines, and downloadable audiobooks, as well as online research and learning tools.
