The Library and the COVID-19 Virus

Updated 3/27

Highland City has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and planning and preparing for the impacts to our community. As per Governor’s Herbert recommendations given on March 12 and March 27, the City is joining together with other Utah communities and business to do our best to limit the spread of COVID-19.

First Response

During March 16-27 the Library closed its doors to the public but maintained phone service for accounts and curbside pickup of holds.  

Further Adjustments

In response to Governor Herbert’s request to "do more" in his press conference of March 27th, the Library has decided to discontinue phone service for accounts and curbside pickup, allowing staff to stay home as the Governor recommends .  This will continue until at least April 14th. We are committed to our patrons and will resume a higher level of service as soon as it is deemed safe.  

No Book Returns

For the time being we are asking patrons to not return library materials.  Be assured no fines will accrue.  We will inform patrons when they are allowed to return items.  Watch our website, Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.

Online Resources

We are proud to continue to offer excellent online resources while we are closed. Patrons can checkout e-books/e-audiobooks. The staff is creating virtual programs weekly for children. We also have excellent information resources under our Research/Learn tab.
