Moving to Curbside
It saddens us to say, the St. Marys Public Library will be closed to in-person use of the library for the foreseeable future starting Thursday, November 26th. This is not a decision we made lightly or are happy about.
We are open for in person use the rest of this week and M, Tue, W next week.
M 10-5, Tue 1-7, Wed 10-5, Thu 1-7, Fri 10-5
The library will be providing curbside service starting Monday, November 30th. You will be able to place orders for pick-up through our online card catalog system, our google form (https://bit.ly/3pDl8gA), and by calling the library at 834-6141.
This will be just like we were this summer. Bookdrop is open...feel free to stock-up!
If you do not know what you want to read, ask the staff to pick out books for you! We know it’s hard to browse, so let us do it for you. Tell us what you like, and we will pick the books out. We will also be making virtual displays of books that we will have on our website and Facebook page.
The wi-fi is accessible in the parking spaces in front of the building.
The password is on a large poster in the front window.
If you need something printed you can send the document to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will place it in the outdoor bin. This will only be for vitally important documents (resumes, car registrations, legal documents, etc.).
The hours of the library will remain the same.
Please visit the library on our website and our Facebook page for updated information.
The book sale room is open all this week and next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday if people want to stock up.....the price is a donation of your choice.
