Orcas Island Library Closure
The Library is closed until further notice.
BOOK & MAGAZINE DONATIONS: Please to not leave book & magazine donations at the Library while it remains closed. Staff and members of the Friends of the Library will not be on the premises to gather donations. Thank you for your understanding.
Keep your books and movies! (Well ... not permanently.) All materials checked out [books, audio books, magazines, videos, interlibrary loans] have been renewed to April 30, 2020! Please do not return your items to any of our return bins during this time. Thanks.
We have taken this difficult step out of concern for the health for Orcas Island residents. Evidence is compelling that limiting social contacts can help reduce the potential for the Coronavirus/COVID-19 to spread throughout our community.
We will continue to study this serious community issue with County health officials and others. If we can in any way restore services at some level, either before or after the end of March, we will share this welcome news as soon and as widely as possible.
We recognize the serious impact that this decision will have on all of us.
As we work through future options, please continue to contact us at 360-376-4985, or email Library Director Phil Heikkinen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also post updates to our website at www.orcaslibrary.org.
Our website offers a variety of resources such as ebooks, e-audiobooks, a wide variety of databases, language learning, streaming movies and other alternatives, all available with your library card number and PIN. You can return any library materials as usual to our book drop locations in Deer Harbor, Olga, Orcas Landing, and the Library itself.
