Library Status

LMxAC member libraries are evolving their plans to safely and effectively continue service during this ongoing public health crisis. The information below will be updated as each library’s plans are shared.

Many services require appointments scheduled in advance. Check your local library’s website, listed below, for full details. Please be aware that at this time libraries are required to limit capacity in their buildings and may also limit their available services to local residents.

Please remember that our member libraries have many digital resources available to you and are doing all they can to serve you remotely. You can find more information at your library’s website.

We all look forward to when we are able to welcome you into all of our member libraries. Until then please use the services currently available. Stay well.
