Our libraries keep our wi-fi up and open, even when we are closed so that you can have internet access to download materials, work on your own projects, or find entertainment. We will be posting information about our re-opening on our Facebook page, on local Nextdoor pages, as well as here on the home page of our website, when the time comes. Thank you all!
NOTICE OF PINES AND PLAINS LIBRARIES TEMPORARY CLOSURES:
Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued an Executive Order on April 26th, 2020, requiring most Coloradans and non-essential workers to stay at home whenever possible due to the presence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the State. See the “Safer at Home Order” here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home
In accordance with the Order, the Board of Trustees of Pines & Plains Libraries has voted unanimously to close all District libraries until further notice. Please do not attempt to return any library materials during this closure. Pines & Plains Libraries remain late-fee free, and we will automatically extend due dates. You may return your borrowed items when 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, so that you can park or sit outside the building and use the free internet. You can check out e-books, audiobooks, or use Worldbook digital content during closures as well. Just tap, click, or mouse-over the “Beyond Books” menu at the top of the website.
