(as of 10:30 AM – 3/16/2020)
After continuing to consider a multitude of factors and the rapidly changing situation in Nassau County around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) including the closure of all schools for two weeks, Long Beach Public Library, including the Point Lookout and West End branches, will be closed to the public until Monday March 30th.
We encourage every community member to take precautions to limit the impact of this crisis including washing hands regularly with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds, staying home if you’re feeling sick, working from home if you can, and continuing to practice social distancing.
We know the Library is a critical resource for all, so we are taking steps to support our patrons as much as possible during this temporary closure:
- Book drops are open but don’t feel you need to drop off any materials!
- Due dates on all items will be extended until at least April 6th to give you extra time to return.
- Late fees will not be charged.
- All locations will be sanitized before they reopen.
The safety and health of our patrons and staff are the Library’s top priority.
As a reminder, library resources are still available to you online 24/7 with your library card including eBooks and audiobooks, magazines, movies, and newspapers. We are currently working on a way to sign people up for eLibrary cards to access online resources, so please periodically check back in for more info as it becomes available.
Please know you can contact us anytime with questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or via social media.
As the situation changes, we will continue to communicate any further Library updates as a result of the Coronavirus on our website (www.longbeachlibrary.org) and social media. You can also sign up for our email list below.
