Driftwood Public Library to Close for One Week Due to COVID-19 Risk
In consultation with Lincoln County Public Health and the City Manager, Driftwood Public Library will close to the public from Sunday, January 23rd through Saturday, January 29th. Curbside service and computer time are available by appointment. The library will reopen on Sunday, January 30th at 1 PM.
This decision comes in the wake of Lincoln County Public Health’s alert, issued on January 21st, stating that cases are surging in Lincoln County and Public Health is overwhelmed. With this planned closure, library staff and the city administration hope to reduce community spread among library patrons and avert unplanned closures due to staff member illness.
Curbside pick-up of library materials is available by appointment on Sundays from 1 PM – 5 PM and from 10 AM – 5 PM Monday-Friday. Computer appointments will also be available at these times. To schedule an appointment, please call the library at 541-996-2277 and press 1 at the menu. Online resources are available 24/7 at www.driftwoodlib.org.
