Library News

SAFETY

Mat-Su Borough Directive #10 requires everyone who enters a borough building, including the libraries, to wear a mask, observe social distancing, and limit their time inside. If you are not able to wear a mask please take advantage of our online and curbside service. In compliance with Borough Directive 10 we are limiting our computer access to essential needs, and we cannot host meetings of any kind.

If you are ill please do not return your library material or come in the library. Just call and we will gladly renew your material for you and deliver whatever you need to you via curbside pickup.

These precautions are disrupting, but they are very important. If just a staff member gets sick, or even exposed, Big Lake Library may have to close for weeks, so thank you for everything you do to help us stay open.
