The Library and the COVID-19 Virus

Updated 4/8

Highland City has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and planning and preparing for the impacts to our community. As per Governor’s Herbert recommendations the City is joining together with other Utah communities and business to do our best to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Curbside Pickup

The Library is currently closed to the public, but is offering curbside pickup of Library holds.  Pickup days will be each Thursday from 10:00-5:00. To insure that items checked out to users are free from COVID-19 contamination, they will be bagged and quarantined for two days before pickup.  Items on hold by Monday will be available on that Thursday. Items placed on hold after Monday each week will be available for the pickup day the following week.  You can place holds on up to 10 items each week.

Items must be placed on hold by Monday to be available for pickup on Thursday.

To pick up holds: 

When your hold is filled you will receive an email message.  On your pickup day, drive to the Library. Call the circulation desk (801-772-4528) to let us know you are here.  We will bring your bag of items to a table under a white canopy near the parking lot south of the Library.  You can pick it up there.

Phone Service

We also offer phone service for renewing cards, issuing new cards, and answering questions.  Phone service will be available Monday-Thursday, 10:00-5:00 and Friday 10:00-4:00.

No Book Returns

For the time being we are asking patrons to not return library materials.  Be assured no fines will accrue.  We will inform patrons when they are allowed to return items.  Watch our website, Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.

Online Resources

We are proud to continue to offer excellent online resources while we are closed. Patrons can checkout e-books/e-audiobooks. The staff is creating virtual programs weekly for children. We also have excellent information resources under our Research/Learn tab.
