Omicron is looming in areas across the country…GET YOUR VACCINATION if you love your family, your friends and yourself!!
A Letter from the Lincoln City Library Director
Dear Driftwood Community,
In the wake of Lincoln County Public Health’s alert, issued on January 21st, stating that Omicron Virus cases are surging in Lincoln County and LCPH is overwhelmed, I have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the library building to the public. This decision was made at the direction of the City Manager and in consultation with Lincoln County Public Health. The closure will run from Sunday, January 23rd through Saturday, January 29th. We plan to reopen to the public on Sunday, January 30th. Any changes to this plan will be communicated on the library and City websites, on social media, and via email.
It is my hope that this planned closure will help reduce community spread of the COVID-19 virus, and will also help us avert unplanned closures due to staff illness.
Computer time and curbside pick-up of holds are available during the closure! To schedule an appointment to use the computers, please call us at 541-996-2277 and press 1. Appointments are available for up to one hour on the hour, 1-5 PM on Sundays and 10 AM – 5 PM Monday-Friday, with the final appointments of the day starting at 4 PM. In order to reduce staff exposure and maintain social distancing, staff assistance with the computers is limited. You are welcome to bring one other person with you to your appointment.
Curbside pick-ups are available from 1-5 PM on Sunday and 10 AM – 5 PM Monday-Friday. To schedule an appointment to pick up your holds, please call us at 541-996-2277 and press 1. You may place holds for materials online, or give us a call if you need assistance! Holds are picked up at the library’s back door on Galley Ave, directly behind the Library/City Hall building.
As always, if you need help with research or finding answers to your questions, our Reference Librarian is ready and willing to assist you during the library’s business hours! Our ebooks and other electronic resources are also available 24/7 on our website.
During the course of the pandemic, it’s been clearer than ever before how crucial the library is to so many of you. Thank you for working with us to steer a course that allows us to support the community and keep our patrons and staff as safe as possible.
Kirsten Brodbeck-Kenney, Library Director
