Newton County Public Library is proud to be an Evergreen Indiana Library - Evergreen Indiana is a growing consortium of more than 100 public, school and institutional libraries located throughout Indiana that use the Evergreen ILS. Patrons of member libraries can use their Evergreen Indiana library card to view the catalogs and borrow materials from the other member libraries, and are always welcome to visit member libraries.
The Newton County Public Library recognizes that it has obligations to patrons and staff to provide a safe environment in the event of an outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In response to guidance from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
· Lake Village Memorial Township Library, Morocco Community Library, and Roselawn Library will remain closed until 6 April 2020. This closure may be extended further with the development of this pandemic.
· Materials will not be considered overdue during this time, and fines will not be charged during this closure.
· All programs are cancelled, but many will be rescheduled when we resume normal operation.
· All scheduled community room use will be cancelled during this time.
We appreciate the patrons and communities we serve, and want our residents to remain strong and healthy. Please follow guidelines for limited social interaction. We look forward to returning to "business as usual."
