We ask that patrons stay in their vehicle and call the library at 205-487-2484 to inform staff you are in the parking lot.
The staff will let you know if your items are ready and will place on a table outside in a bag with your name attached.
We ask that all patrons follow social distancing protocols while waiting for your items.
6-feet spacing will be marked outside but waiting in your car will be the best procedure.
We are safely reopening the library in phases. Please be patient as the library remains closed until further notice.
The Covid-19 virus has had an unprecedented impact on the library and the communities we serve.
Our plan to reopen is dependent on factors such as recommendations from local and national health agencies, social distancing protocols, critical community needs, and a sustained reduction in new Covid-19 cases within the community for at least 14 days. The primary consideration is maintaining the safety of library patrons and staff while finding ways to provide necessary services that the library is uniquely positioned to perform.
NO DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME – NO EXCEPTIONS!
PHASE III will be announced ASAP. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been a difficult and trying few months as new information comes out weekly. In our best effort to protect our players, coaches, families and the community, we have made the decision to cancel our baseball and softball seasons until the fall. We plan to offer these programs in the fall, in addition to volleyball and soccer.
We will be calling each players parent/guardian to determine the best option for refunds.
Option 1 - receive the jersey and use the balance of the amount paid as a donation to the park.
Option 2 - receive the jersey and a refund of the amount paid above the cost of the jersey.
During this time, all athletic fields will remain closed as will playgrounds, Senior Center, and the Community Center. The Walking track is available for walking. We encourage you to continue to follow the state's social distancing guidelines.
We will update the public via the City's social media outlets and website as more information becomes available. This community's welfare is of the utmost importance to us during this time, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
We plan to come back in the fall prepared, stronger and better than ever!
Northwest Medical Center is conducting a Community Health Needs Assessment and needs your help. The objective of this assessment is a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors and needs of the residents in the service area of your hospital. The information gathered in this survey will be used to inform decisions and guide efforts to improve community health and wellness. By participating in the survey, you can help Northwest Medical Center serve you better by identifying the needs that are important to you.
We will be safely reopening the library in phases. Please be patient as we remain closed until further notice.

Time is the best disinfectant!
The easiest, safest, and most inexpensive disinfectant is time. Libraries are recommended to stay closed until the risk of public infection is eliminated. Quarantine past the viability of the virus is the best plan.

We are sorry for any inconvenience, but health and safety is most important. We look forward to playing again as soon as possible.
