COVID-19

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

Though our physical library locations are closed to the public for now, we’re excited to continue supporting our community through Curbside Pickup, Computer Appointments, and online programs. Click on one of the tabs below to find answers to frequently asked questions about Scott County Library services. 

We will update this webpage as new information is available. 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. 

 Customers may now visit library buildings to use computers by appointment. 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.
