Dear Patrons,
Following current advice from health officials and our library colleagues throughout the state, Harrison County Library System will close from Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until Saturday, March 21, 2020. As our locations have hundreds of visitors each week, we feel that closing is the best course of action to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to help protect patrons and staff.  This closure could be extended according to how the situation develops.
We realize that these closings will be an inconvenience, and we will be posting a variety of ways for you to access materials and information outside the library. We offer ebooks and digital audio and video on the Hoopla app, as well as over 500 different classes with Universal Class. Please call us if you need assistance setting up or accessing our electronic items.
We will also investigate providing curb pickup at some locations. As always, our WIFI  is available to you on our property during library hours. Fines on physical items will not accumulate during our closures.
We will post changes in library services and links to alternate resources on our social media, so please check there for information. Our branch contacts are on our website, along with links to digital materials.
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together to respond to this situation for the good of our communities.
