As part of the effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in the community, the Brighton District Library has made the difficult decision to close its facility, effective at 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 15. The Library is planning to reopen on Monday, April 6.
Decisions like these do not come easy, as it means a temporary loss of access to collections, in-person services, and gathering spaces the Library is known for providing to so many in the community.
All public use of library facilities, collections and meeting rooms is canceled for the duration of this closure. Library materials may be returned to the outdoor drop boxes. However, items falling due during this closure will not be assessed late fees if they are not returned before the Library reopens. Items on the hold shelf will remain there until after the Library reopens. New reservations for community meeting rooms and study rooms are suspended until further notice.
We will continue to provide the many digital services you have come to love, such as e-books and e-audiobooks, as well as digital magazines.
Additionally, staff will be available Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to provide account assistance and reference services remotely to patrons via telephone and email.
