COVID-19

Effective March 18, 2020, all Scott County Library locations are closed to the public until further notice. 

Our top priority is ensuring Scott County Library can respond to the needs of our community, while taking precautionary steps to maintain the health and safety of our customers and staff. While we have closed our physical library locations to the public for now, we are uniquely positioned to continue supporting our community with online resources and services. The library’s large collection of digital resources gives you online access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, learning tools, homework help, and more.

We will update this webpage as new information is available. Please click on one of the tabs below to find answers to frequently asked questions about Library services. In the meantime, important public health information and the status of other Scott County services can be found here.

Are library buildings open?

At this time, all library buildings remain closed, but library staff are actively providing service. We will continue to provide Curbside Pickup service for picking up physical library materials throughout the summer. 

Starting Tuesday May 26th, customers may visit library buildings to use computers by appointment. Please visit our Computers page to learn more about this service. 

Why aren’t the libraries open?

We’re currently working on a phased re-opening plan, following guidance from the Governor’s Office and Scott County administration. The implementation of each phase of the plan is subject to not only the guidance we receive but also the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE). 

Every step of the way, it is critical that we take appropriate action to ensure customers and staff are as safe as possible when they’re in our spaces. We will provide advance notice and specifics of locations and services as soon as possible. 

We remain committed to finding new ways to serve you, and we appreciate your patience as we continue to learn how to navigate through this process with you. Follow this space to keep up-to-date with what we’re doing. We’re eager to reopen our doors and see you again in person when it is safe to do so.
