Library's COVID-19 FAQ
Library's response to COVID-19
The Governor has stated that local government authorities will determine when local libraries can reopen. City management has made the decision to only offer limited services at this time for the health and safety of patrons and staff.
At this time there is not a set date when the library will become fully operational, but a plan has been established to reopen in phases. While maintaining everyone’s health a priority, the goal is to become fully operational in a safely manner.
City management will decide when it is safe to reinstate all library services, while first and foremost, maintaining everyone’s health as a priority.
The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged library staff to find new and innovative ways to continue serving the community and we are thankful for the support our patrons have shown us as we adapt to our new environment. The Seguin Public Library appreciates, and values the community it serves, and will continue to provide services to the best of its ability.
