Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library closes on March 16
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library will close on March 16 at noon and will remain closed for several weeks.
“With the recent announcement of Wood County’s first confirmed case of COVID-19, it is clear that to protect the health and safety of our patrons, staff, and community as a whole, the Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library must close at Noon on Monday, March 16, and will remain closed at least through Monday, April 6th,” Director Lori Belongia said in a release.
“As April 6 approaches, library management will evaluate the situation to determine how and when to reopen.
“As you’ve no doubt heard, public health officials are emphasizing the importance of ‘flattening the curve’ by slowing transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The intention is to spread out the number of individuals requiring care over time and avoid overwhelming our healthcare systems.”
Holds currently waiting will not expire and will be available for pick up when the library reopens. No items will be due during this time. Any overdue fines accrued will be waived. Patrons are encouraged to keep their items at home until after the library reopens.
