Library Closing

The Board of Trustees of the Richards Library has decided to CLOSE the library until at least 7 April 2020. On that date, they will re-evaluate on whether to re-open or remain closed until a later date. The library will close effective today, 16 March at 5 PM.
During the time we are closed, any late fees will be waived. If you are able to return the book, DVDs, etc., please drop them off at the book drop located at the Library Avenue entrance.
Check our Facebook page or this web page for future updates. Please stay safe and healthy…we’ll get through this trying time together!! PLEASE SHARE this post with all friends on all media platforms you are associated with….THANK YOU!!!

Board Meeting to Discuss Library Closure

Good Morning Patrons and Friends,
The Board of Trustees will be meeting this P.M. to discuss the closing of the library due to the COVID-19 virus (corona virus) concerns. If that should happen, I will notify you through our Facebook page and here on our web page.
As of right now, if you do not need to come to the library, please don’t. If you need to drop off books, please use the drop box located at the Library Avenue entrance. IF the library does close, again, you can drop books off at the drop box. IF any of your returns are late during our closure, you will NOT incur a late fee. If you did not see our previous post, book deliveries will be suspended until further notice starting on Tuesday, 17 March. Please think of your health first when considering venturing out. Also, please SHARE THIS POST/INFO with all your Facebook friends, Twitter, and any other social media contacts so the word can be spread as much as possible. THANK YOU and stay healthy!!!!!
