FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Allen County Public Library is closing all locations for a month becuase of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
A statement from Greta Southard, Executive Director of Allen County Public library, says in part with guidance from local health officials, all locations will close and they're cancelling all programs, events, meeting room bookings and outreach activities.
All libraries will be closed starting Monday, March 16 through Saturday, April 11.
The statement says all branches will resume normal hours to the public on Sunday, April 12.
However, programs, events and room bookings will continue to be cancelled until at least Monday, May 18, 2020.
The library says they're working to see if they can hit pause on all holds during the time they're closed so you won't receive notifications or lose your place in line for materials.
Staff will still be available via "Ask a Librarian" and electronic resources will still be accessible.
