Summit County Library COVID-19 Information
The Summit County Library is following guidance from Summit County officials on our response to COVID-19.
In the interest of protecting vulnerable community members, to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus all Summit County Libraries will be closed from Saturday, March 14th until Wednesday, April 1.
For staff safety, we have also closed our 3 outdoor book drops. Please hold onto you material until we reopen. (unless you are leaving Summit County indefinitely) Fines will be waived during our closure period or you can visit 'My Account' at the top of the page to renew your materials.
We will continue to monitor the situation and seek advice from public health officials to determine when the libraries can reopen.
