After considerable deliberation, the Timberland Regional Library Administration has decided to close all of its Library facilities to the public to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic 2019 (COVID-19).

Stage Three: Library Closure

Closure in effect Saturday, March 14 until at least Friday, April 24, 2020.  All Timberland library facilities will be closed. All Library Book Return locations will also be closed.
We encourage patrons to keep the materials they currently have until our buildings reopen. No late fees!  If materials are left at book drops or library locations, fees could occur for lost or damaged items.
We encourage our patrons to check out our many Virtual Resources that will continue to be available during the closure of the physical buildings:

Normally these cards are only valid for 14 days.  This has been extended to eight weeks.
When you submit this Online Card registration a temporary card number will display.
