All branches of the Sequoyah Regional Library have closed in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, officials said.
No date has been determined for when the libraries will reopen.
"Out of concern for our patrons, staff, and the community at large during this public health emergency, the Sequoyah Regional Library System will be closed to the public until further notice," Executive Director Anita Summers said. "During this time, we ask that all materials currently checked out please not be returned. Our book returns are closed and items currently checked out will not accrue any fines."
Summers encouraged library users to take advantage of the system's eLibrary remote services online at www.sequoyahregionallibrary.org/
"Even though our doors are closed, our staff is working hard to make our services as accessible as possible," Summers said. "The library’s eLibrary remote services will continue as usual. This is a great time to explore digital magazines, eBooks, digital learning platforms, and more."
Library staff can be reached and questions answered via the system's “Contact Us” form on the website, Summers said.
