Following Gov. Laura Kelly’s announcement of a phased loosening of restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Salina Public Library will work to establish a pickup service. While gatherings continue to be limited to 10 people, the library building will remain closed.

Pickup service is tentatively scheduled to begin May 18. Announcements about how to utilize this service will be made through media outlets, on the library’s Facebook page and on salinapubliclibrary.org. Patrons may begin returning library items to book drops on May 12. These are located on the west side of the library building and Dillons stores. Late fines will not begin accruing until June 1. If additional restrictions are put in place, these dates may be extended.

The library offers a variety of digital services including Sunflower eLibrary, Hoopla and RBDigital. New library cards can be obtained through the library’s website. Interactive activities and Tuesday Talks, Q&A sessions on specific topics, are available on the library’s Facebook page. Library staff are on hand to answer questions via website chat or by email at [email protected].
