FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Jennifer Tallman, Library Director, Jane Morgan Memorial Library, (920) 382-5932
In response to Governor Tony Evers’ orders to close all K-12 schools and prohibiting large gatherings, the Jane Morgan Memorial Library will close at 9:00 am on Monday, March 16, and will remain closed at least through Sunday, April 5. We will be reevaluating the situation daily and will provide further updates if these plans should change.
This decision was not made lightly. The scientific community agrees that “social distancing” is an important factor in preventing the spread of COVID-19. While we value serving as a community gathering space, at this time that is precisely what we should not be doing. We are taking this precautionary step on behalf of our patrons, staff, and the community during this pandemic.
During the closure, we ask that patrons not return items, as our book drop will not be available. We will be extending due dates on all materials for the convenience of all. We will not be charging any overdue fines on any materials during this closure.
While our physical location will be closed, our digital library resources are available on our website, www.jmml.org, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, and research databases. This would be a great time to learn a language using Transparent Languages, or to read a book checked out from Overdrive!
The safety of our patrons and staff is of highest importance for the library. Please follow us on Social Media (Facebook) and check our website for updates. We will continue to provide further information as the situation continues to evolve and development.
We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time, and we look forward to serving you in the future.
Here are some great resources to use while we are closed!
