The Library is Closed Saturday and Sunday

The Community Library will be closed Saturday and Sunday this weekend, as all staff are involved with emergency preparations and volunteer operations. Like many of our patrons, a number of our staff were and are under mandatory evacuation, and the rest are in pre-evacuation preparation staging. Our thoughts are with everyone in the community affected by the fire.

We will reopen as soon as possible–currently we are shooting for Monday, but we will have to make that call when more information about the north and south flanks of the fire is gathered over the weekend. In the meantime, you can follow some of our updates on our Facebook and Twitter accounts– @librarydenizenk on twitter, and The Community Library on Facebook.

There are some actions you can take to support the Library and your fellow patrons during the state of emergency.

1)Don’t return your books until we reopen! Our bookdrops are full. Remember, there will be no fines or fees for late returns. There will be time to return items after the fires are controlled, and we don’t want patrons making extra unnecessary trips on the road.

2)Our network servers are going to be taken down over the weekend, so the catalog will be unavailable. Don’t worry, the Library is not broken, we are just minimizing risk to the servers.

3)Watch out for yourselves and fellow patrons out there–we will see you all back in the Library soon!

Edited 10:40 am: LeAnn Gelskey, the Director of the Hailey Library, says the Hailey Library will be open today until 6:00 pm. Our own broadband wifi communications net will be left open for people who want to drive by and use the WiFi. The wireless broadband access extends beyond the steps of the adult entrance to the front parking spaces, and is open to the public.

    • Thank you, LeAnn, and good work on the website! I need to edit the entry above–our broadband wireless communications will remain operational for folks who want to drive up and connect via wifi.
