What we are doing to keep patrons and staff safe

The Library is committed to following state and local Covid-19 guidelines.  Currently neither staff or patrons are required to wear masks at the library, but wearing masks is encouraged for high risk individuals or when social distancing is not possible. We require staff to stay at home when they have any COVID-19 symptoms whether or not they are vaccinated.  We encourage patrons to follow the same guidelines.

Curbside Pickup for High-risk or Quarantined Patrons

If you are in a high risk category, or if you are quarantined because of COVID-19, you can arrange for curbside pickup of library items.  Place items on hold using the online catalog, and then call the circulation desk, (801-772-4528) to arrange a pickup time.  It may take up to 24 hours after you place a hold on an item currently on the shelf, for us to have it ready for pickup.

Library Programs

Weekly library programs have resumed. Programs are held in the Council Chambers when possible to allow for more social distancing.  Only Highland Library Card holders may attend programs.  If you have a library card from Lehi, American Fork, Eagle Mountain, or Pleasant grove, please attend programs in your home library.

The Library may suspend in-person programs at any time when directed to do so by the City Council.  While in-person programs are suspended the Library will offer virtual versions of the programs. Check the Library's website for the latest information about live program availability.

Online Resources

We are proud to continue to offer excellent online resources that are always available. Patrons can checkout e-books/e-audiobooks through the Libby app. Patrons can also hover over the Research/Learn link to see the amazing informational databases, especially the new Learning Express Library and Tumblebooks
