Coburn Free Library - CLOSED

The board has decided to close the Coburn Free Library out of an abundance of caution to protect patrons and staff.

We will re-assess weekly to determine the best course of action. We will be closed until further notice.

Have books out? Don't panic. All due dates have been reset to May 1. If you have books that were already overdue, drop them in the book drop and they will be checked in. Any additional fines due to our closure will be waived.

Remember, our ebooks and audio books are available 24 hours a day online.

All of the programs you love will be back once the health scare has passed. As response to public health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Coburn Free Public Library has taken precautions that may help limit the spread of the virus in accordance with recommended practices. All programs and gatherings have now been postponed for the remainder of March. We will reassess on April 1. Meeting room reservations have been cancelled. You may call to reschedule once we are able to resume business as usual. Coburn Free Library continues to offer online resources for ebooks and audio books. We will continue to monitor the situation and will respond appropriately as we receive further guidance from the health department and government entities. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to resuming programming soon!
