Seekonk Library Services Update

Posted

Seekonk, MA – (April 21, 2020) We hope you are keeping healthy and safe during the COVID public health emergency.

For the health & safety of our staff and community, the library building is currently closed due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The outside book drop is locked. Delivery services to and from the library have been suspended across the state. We ask that you hold onto your library materials until the library re-opens.

Library staff and many of our services remain here for you:

Contact us. Staff are working remotely from home and are available to answer questions. Contact us via email at library@seekonkpl.org or childrens@seekonkpl.org, via social media, or by phone at 508-336-8230. While monitoring these accounts remotely we will make every effort to reply in a timely manner.

New library cards. You can register for a library card online from our website seekonkpl.org; click on “Get a Card” at the top of the page. You will have access to the digital formats provided by OverDrive and the statewide accessible databases for 60 days.

Download, Stream and Learn. We encourage use of our online resources, which include ebooks, audiobooks, music, streaming movies, and databases, available FREE from www.seekonkpl.org with your Seekonk Library card.

Our Wi-Fi is ON. Our wi-fi service is on and accessible from our parking lot. The network is “Guest” and no password is required. Please note that parking closer to the library is your best option for access. Please observe distancing and other health guidelines.

In cooperation with the SAILS network, we have made the following updates to library services:

Due dates will be extended. Due dates for items currently checked out across libraries has been extended.

Overdue fines will be waived. Overdue fines will be waived for all library items currently checked out during our closing.

Hold pickup dates will be extended. If you had been notified prior to our closure that an item was available for pick-up, that item will be available for you when we do re-open.

During this virus, we are following the guidelines from Governor Baker, our Town Administrator, and our public health officials. At this point, it is uncertain when the library will re-open. Keep in touch with service updates through social media, the library website, and our email newsletter. You can sign up for our email newsletter by clicking “Newsletter” at the bottom of our website seekonkpl.org.

Please know we will continue to serve you remotely, we thank you for your ongoing support, and we look forward to seeing you again.
