Based upon the recommendation of the Woodford County Health Department and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, the Woodford County Library District Board of Trustees has directed the closure of the Woodford County Library to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The closure began Sunday, March 15, and will continue for at least two weeks. The Board of Trustees and Library Administration will continuously monitor the public health situation and consult with the Woodford County Health Department and local elected officials to determine when the Library can resume normal operations. We do not make this decision lightly. Many Woodford County residents rely on the library’s programs and services. It is imperative, however, that we take all the necessary actions to mitigate the spread of this virus. By suspending the library’s normal operations, we are taking steps to protect the health and well-being of Woodford County’s residents. Patrons may continue to hold all materials that are due back during this time period until the library reopens. No fines will be charged on these materials. We encourage patrons to explore all materials available through our digital library to download or stream to a computer, smart phone or portable device. We also encourage patrons to periodically visit the library’s Facebook page and website for news about the library and its available services. We appreciate your understanding during this very difficult situation.
