Special Message from the Library Director

March 23, 2020

Dear Library Patrons,

Well it was good while it lasted…..

Unfortunately, our building will be closed to staff starting tomorrow. We will no longer be able to offer our curbside service for the time being. We will be closing our online form, email and phone orders at 2pm. Last pick up will be today, Monday, March 23, 2020 between 3-5pm in front of Ruby street doors.

Return boxes will also be closed. Please keep your library items till staff can return to the building. There will be no late fines accrued at this time.

Again we apologize for this disruption. We hope to resume our order/pick-up service soon! Online resources are still available. If you have trouble logging into your account, please email camarilloj@ci.ellensburg.wa.us and I will assist as best I can.

I will communicate to all our patrons as updates become available. I am committed to the health and well-being of Library/HH staff and our patrons. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we work through this difficult time. Please be safe and take care.
