Library Closure Extended and Other Updates

Bartlett Public Library District
Updated 5/1/2020 8:34 AM

In light of the Governor's Executive Order that was announced on April 24, 2020, the Bartlett Public Library District must extend its closure through the end of May 2020. This date may change if the Governor updates the order.

The public does not need to worry about returning anything during this time as overdue fines are still not being applied to checked out items. The Library's book drop remains closed until further notice.
