As you may already know, on March 23 the City of Mount Vernon decided to close many in-person services citywide, including the Library until further notice. While we believe library services are essential for many educational, social, and business development reasons, and limiting services is very difficult for us, we are doing our part to model best practices for social distancing, keeping staff and the public safe.
At this time, we hope to reopen sometime in April, but due to the fluid and dynamic aspect of the current situation with COVID-19, that is subject to change. When we do re-open the building, we will likely slowly reintroduce services, starting with a holds only take out model and then upping service offerings from there.
Please keep your library materials until we reopen as the book drops are closed. Due dates have been extended until May 1 and there will be no accruing fines.
If you have any questions, please leave us a voicemail at (360) 336-6209 or send us an email and someone will be in contact with you. You can also still reach us by old school mail at 315 Snoqualmie St. Mount Vernon, WA 98273.
