PRESCOTT/NEVADA COUNTY LIBRARY

2021 WINTER PROGRAMS/SERVICES

The Nevada County Library will continue to answer phones and offer curbside service Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. for the foreseeable future.

Returning Library Materials and Fines: The book drop will be open to allow patrons to bring back materials they’ve been holding so our staff can start processing those materials. Late fees or fines for materials returned past their due date will continue to be waived for two weeks following the library’s book drop reopening to the public to allow for all materials to be returned. All returned materials must be placed in outside book drop in the rear of the library.

APPOINTMENTS

Appointment based access to library computers and browsing materials to be used to secure critical needs.

Technology HelpThe library is frequently a place where patrons learn how to use various forms of technology. The spread of coronavirus and social distancing impose unique difficulties in providing help with devices and on public computers. Because most technology help requires patrons and staff to be at close quarters, there will be limits on how help can be provided until social distancing recommendations are lifted.

Internet AccessInternet access is a critical resource for the community especially during times of economic distress. Patrons require internet access to apply for unemployment insurance, access social services, apply for jobs, tax documents, and access educational resources. Moreover, internet access can be provided to patrons with a limited amount of danger to both patrons and staff in cerements of 30 minutes.

Checkout Material: Browse and select items for checkout in the building by appointment (limit of 15 minutes).

Notary: Notarizations and legal forms available by appointment.
