Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and McArthur Library's Response:

Updated 5/3/2020

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, McArthur Library will remain closed to the public until further notice, at least through the entire month of May. We will be using this time to plan, as we actively 
follow national and state guidance for libraries. Ideally, we hope to be able to offer limited services to the public in a safe manner, tentatively sometime in June. The safety of our staff and our community will continue to be our primary consideration during this time. We thank you for your patience and understanding. Please continue to keep library material at home. No fees will be charged and 
all due dates have been extended.

We encourage our community to keep up to date with accurate information.
