Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-20 (COVID-19) has extended the closure of all libraries in the state through April 13.
- We extended the due dates on all materials, including MeL items, to April 30.
- Do not return materials to the library at this time. Stay home, stay safe.
- We've suspended the ability to place holds. If you have an item on hold, your place in the queue is frozen. If you have a hold item ready for pick up, it will be there for you when we reopen. You will not be charged for failure to pick up your hold.
- MeL requests are also suspended.
- We've doubled the number of items you can check out each month on hoopla, from 20 items per card to 40.
- Kanopy has added no-credit titles, which means these titles will not count against your monthly cap. Also, Kanopy for Kids is now free for a limited time.
- We've shifted our purchasing to add more electronic materials to our collection and reduce hold times for these items.
- Standard cards set to expire in March or April have been renewed through April 30.
- If your card has expired within the last six months, you can request that it be renewed. We will renew for your card for three months.
- If you've applied online for a card, allow a minimum of three to five days for processing.
