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.

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!
