Temporary Closing Update

Hi, everyone. Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate this difficult time. Our temporary closing for the renovation was an interesting coincidence of timing in regard to the COVID-19 outbreak, so we are thankful you were prepared in advance for our downtime.

Just a couple of things:

1–The county libraries are all closed to the public, and many of their drop-boxes are not accessible as well. *PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHECKED-OUT ITEMS UNTIL THE LIBRARIES RE-OPEN* You will NOT be charged late fees, regardless of which branch to which the item is due back.

2–Because of the closure, we are temporarily suspending online holds for the time being. You can still browse through the online catalog and view your account, however you will not be able to reserve anything until further notice.

3–With so many of our grade-school and college students at home, here is some database info that you may find helpful. As a reminder, the Traveler Databases are free to use for any Arkansas resident and can be accessed from the State Library’s webpage with no additional logins required. You just need to be in the state of Arkansas with your device’s location services turned on. Below is the link:…/…/databases-by-title…

Thanks again for your support and understanding! Stay safe, and see you soon.
