Changes to Hours and Availability

In doing our part to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, please be aware that beginning Monday, November 16, 2020, and until further notice, the Eaton Rapids Area District Library will be closed to in-person visits. However, vestibule pickup will be available during normal business hours, and we will be offering computer/copier use by appointment. 

 

Online programming and access to our electronic resources (Hoopla, OverDrive, Kanopy, Tumblebooks, Ancestry.com, etc.) will remain available 24/7.

 
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we navigate these uncharted waters together.

Please wear your mask in the library.
