NOTICE OF PINES AND PLAINS LIBRARIES TEMPORARY CLOSURES:
Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued an Executive Order on March 25, 2020, requiring all Coloradans to stay at home whenever possible due to the presence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the State. See the Order here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/
In accordance with the Order, the Board of Trustees of Pines & Plains Libraries has voted unanimously to close all libraries in the District, effective immediately. The Board reserves the right to extend the closing as long as circumstances dictate.
This affects the branches in Elizabeth, Kiowa, Elbert and Simla. Please do not attempt to return any library materials during this closure, and no fines will incur during this period of temporary closure. Renewals and returns will be resolved after our libraries open again. Additionally, all programs and meetings scheduled during this closure are cancelled.
We will keep our Wi-Fi open and available 24/7 during this period, so that you can park or sit outside the building and use the free internet. During this period, our digital content of e-books and e-audio will also remain available through Overdrive and Cloud Library – the e-content may be found under the “Beyond Books” menu on the website.
