Bracken County Public Library suspends programming and meeting room usage through March 27.
Bracken County Public Library has been closely following and monitoring COVID-19 updates to ensure the safety of all Library customers and staff. Under the recommendation of Governor Beshear and other state officials, the Library has decided to close the building beginning Saturday, March 14 through Friday, March 27. The library will continue to monitor the situation for changes and apologizes for any inconvenience, but the welfare and safety of all patrons and staff comes first.
Patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the Library’s digital collection of e-books, e-audio, and streaming content available through Hoopla Digital, Overdrive at kyunbound.overdrive.com, and TumbleBooks. Additional digital resources for research, genealogy, etc. can be found on the the Library’s website, www.brackenlibrary.org, and through links on the library Facebook page. Patrons are also encouraged to place holds on items through the library website, and the staff will pull these items from the shelf and have them ready for pick up when services return.
In a further effort to help stem the tide of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all children’s toys are in temporary storage, and donations of books and other materials will not be accepted until further notice. Patrons are encouraged not to return materials until after April 3, 2020, and any items returned will be place in quarantined area for at least 48-72 hours.
No overdue fines will be charged until after April 3, 2020.
Bracken County Public Library will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and make future decisions based on the recommendations of the Northern Kentucky Health Department and Governor Beshear.
