Coronavirus: All Clark County libraries switch to curbside service after positive case

All of Clark County’s libraries have switched to a curbside service only model for the next two weeks after a positive case of COVID-19 was identified “within the library community," according to a statement from the Clark County Public Library.

According to the statement, curbside service began Tuesday because a positive case of COVID-19 was identified “in our library community.” Curbside will also be used as an effort to “mitigate further spread,” of the virus, the statement said.

“The health and safety of our patrons and staff is a top priority,” the statement said.

Patrons will still be able to place holds on library materials online at or by calling individual locations. (Main Library: 937-328-6903, Enon Branch: 937-864-2502, Houston Branch: 937-462-8047, Park Branch: 937-322-2498, Village Branch: 937-322-2226.)

All libraries will continue to offer public Wi-Fi 24/7, with access available outside of the buildings, the statement said.

“Digital resources will also be available for use with your library card. For those that don’t have a library card, a digital library card may be requested by emailed,” the statement said.

The New Carlisle Public Library is not included in Clark County Public Libraries. The library remains open and requires all those visiting to wear a mask.
