As librarians, it goes against our very nature to suspend services to our community. However, we also want to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. So, beginning March 18, the library will be closed to foot traffic and all programming is either postponed or cancelled. However, some services will still be available.
From 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday – Friday until April 1, library staff will be available to answer calls, check out library items and facilitate faxing and printing. On April 1, the situation will be re-evaluated and appropriate action regarding the library will be taken.
Wifi: Available 24/7 around the library
Checkouts: To request items for checkout you can call the library or access your online account and the library catalog to reserve your selected items. We will pull them, check them out and put them in a bag with your name on it. You may pick up your bag in the entryway of the library at your convenience. Due date for all Whitewater Library items is April 30 so there is no reason to fret about getting items returned in the usual 3 weeks. However, if you do want to return items, please place them in the book return on the east side of the library. Please do not return items in the entryway.
Printing/Faxing: For essential, time-sensitive items that need to be printed or faxed i.e. medical forms, business forms, etc, please call to make arrangements.
Because many libraries are closed and courier service is suspended, Inter-library Loan services are unavailable for the foreseeable future.
