Library Closing

Out of an abundance of concern for its staff and patrons and in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19,  Fairport Harbor Public Library will:

Be open regular hours Saturday, March 14 and Monday, March 16. 

Provide call-ahead/curbside pickup service of materials
Tuesday, March 17 – Friday, March 20,  from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Be closed entirely from Saturday, March 21 through Saturday, April 4

Please call 440-354-8191 to request materials for pickup.  There is no limit on what can be checked out for your family for the next 3 weeks as long as your account is in good standing.  Borrow as much as you think you will need for the duration of the library closure.

All programs, services, outreach activities, and meeting room reservations have been cancelled.

At this time, the library plans to re-open for regular service on Monday, April 6 at 9:00am.  The time period specified above is subject to revision based on developments in public health and recommendations or directives from local, state, or federal officials.

This was a very difficult decision for the board of trustees and staff of the Library.   We know how much our community depends on us. We hope our closure will keep our employees and patrons safe and healthy and reduce exposure to this disease.

We are strongly encouraging patrons to utilize our online services.  Visit our website www.fairportlibrary.com for a complete listing of our digital and streaming services include e-books, audiobooks, movies, and music for patrons to access.  Also on our website is a listing of resources and materials to help students learn and be engaged while schools are closed.

During the library’s closure, we will deep clean and sanitize the library.

Please wait to return all materials until after the library re-opens.  Fairport Harbor Library is fine free and any FHPL materials that are due during this time period will not incur late fees. The Director will consult with other CLEVNET libraries for permission to waive fines on materials from other CLEVNET libraries that are due during this period.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding in these unprecedented times.
