Starting Tuesday, May 26th, Adams County Library will open its doors to the public for limited services on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 10 am to 4:30 pm.

As the first part of Adams County Library’s re-opening process, patrons may visit the library in person. 

The stacks are closed to the public, but Library card holders can request staff to pull materials from the shelves, have items photocopied or faxed, and do quick internet searches on a public computer.  

Space in the library is limited. Patrons are encouraged to wear masks, observe social distancing guidelines, and to keep visits short. 

The Library is continuing curbside service.  To set up a pickup, call or email the staff with notice of the items you want. Staff will set up an appointment for pickup. 

Contact us at 608-339-4250 or .

All checked-out items have been renewed until July 1. They may be returned any time using the book drop at the back door, or inside the library.

Library staff are excited to welcome you back!

The Chocolate Affair

The 2020 Chocolate Affair was a big success!  Thanks for all who helped! 

 

The Chocolate Affair and other fund raisers

Our annual fundraiser is the "Chocolate Affair," a craft and candy sale, held the first Saturday in February at the Middle School in Adams. The Friends sponsor a raffle with wonderful prizes—tickets are for sale in advance. There are many vendors at the event, selling everything from jewelry to books to candy and other tasty treats. Lunch is available, prepared and served by the Friends of the Library. If you would like to have a booth at the Chocolate Affair, please contact Margo Beaver--339-7262. A message given to the library staff will also reach us. The Friends also collect register tapes from the Adams Friendship County Market (IGA). If you have register tapes from the AFCM, please bring them to the library. We'd appreciate it!  There is a Watering Can on the library desk to hold receipts to be used for Library programs.  And there is a special container in the front of the library for tapes to support the Jeanne Heideman scholarship fund.
