It's the joy that just continues, as we continue to hear about new hurdles due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is blanketing the country. But we are finding out by KKCO, that the Mesa County Libraries have stopped many of their services due to the increasing numbers of COVID-19 in our area and to further comply with Mesa County Public Health recommendations when it comes to social distancing and the number of people that should occupy a building or workspace at one time.

Not all aspects of business for the Mesa County Libraries are affected meaning that if you really want to check out a book for the extended Thanksgiving weekend you can still make that happen. You will just need to take advantage of their curbside pickup option currently available.

You would place a book on hold and you will be notified as soon as the book is ready for pickup. You would then call the library upon arrival and a library employee brings you out the materials that you have placed on hold. It really is as simple as it sounds, there are even designated parking spots for people coming for a quick pickup.

At this point, there is no word on just how long this library shutdown of services will take place but the staff is saying they are hoping that it will be over in a couple of weeks. Please remember this decision was not made to burden you or make things more difficult it was strictly for the well-being of those who use the library and the rest of the community.
