Latest Updates from NCW Libraries

From the start of the COVID-19 crisis, we have done our best to make decisions that ensure the safety of our staff and the health of our communities. We have followed the advice of our state government as well as state and local health officials, working proactively to plan for what could come next.

Our state is now strongly urging every member of our communities to remain home as much as possible to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

As a result, our library system will be halting all remaining operations (including Mail Order service) beginning on Wednesday, March 25.
