announcement

  • PCL with sign

    Following the counsel of Governor Herbert and under the direction of Mayor Kaufusi, all library-sponsored programs at the Provo City Library will be suspended until further notice. This includes story time, Learn It programs, computer help lab, and Monday Night concerts. 

    To be cautious, we are also suspending all room reservations including use of our study rooms and the Basement Creative Lab until further notice. Any previously contracted private events will be evaluated on an individual basis with private parties. 

    We encourage users to practice good hygiene habits and social distancing while in the library. We ask that individuals who are sick please refrain from using the library.    

    This is an evolving situation, and our library staff members are actively brainstorming ways that we can provide services while also encouraging public health and safety. 

    We remain committed to our mission of providing information, instruction, learning, leisure, and cultural opportunities. We encourage all users to utilize our digital services: read books with OverDrive, find great music with Freegal, stream movies with Kanopy. Learn new skills with Lynda.com or CreativeBug. These and more digital services can be accessed under the “learn” or the “books and reading” tabs of our website.
