Even though virus numbers haven’t declined like we had hoped, we are still proceeding with resuming full library hours. Beginning Monday, June 1, the library will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The library will be closed on Sundays during the summer months.
We ask that library visitors practice social distancing in the library. We are continuing to reduce seating in the reference area; limit the number of available computers; and keep the reading room closed.
Our annual Summer Reading Program is still a work in progress. We WILL have summer reading; we are still trying to decide the scheduling of programming, and what form programming will take.
Passport acceptance will remain unavailable until we are given the go-ahead from the State Department to resume accepting passport applications.
Following the actions of our local school district, as well as other libraries across Missouri, the Sikeston Public Library will remain closed indefinitely.
In compliance with the city and county stay-at-home order, we have discontinued curbside pickup of library materials.
The library’s Annual Used Book Sale has been postponed–definitely not cancelled! We hope to announce new dates for the sale to take place in May or early June.
We encourage you to follow us on Facebook to stay updated on the latest happenings with the library.
The next time that you go on a bear hunt, please stop by the library and save us! We seem to be surrounded by bears. We have photographed some of them, but we are sure that there are more to be found.
