Share post:

Claudine Pascale, director of the Verona Public Library, sent an email to Library patrons this morning to alert them that it will be closing for two weeks, beginning this afternoon. On Thursday, the Library had suspended special programs until the end of the month.

“The public health concern involving COVID-19 continues to evolve,” Pascale wrote. “We have been working with local officials to make decisions that prioritize public health and safety.”

The Library will be closed from 3 p.m. Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 29. We plan to reopen on Monday, March 30.

Due dates for materials will be pushed to April 1 and holds will be suspended. “Please keep materials at home and do not return items in the book drop until the library reopens,” Pascale added.

“Please be sure to check the library’s website and social media pages for any changes or additional information,” Pascale wrote. “We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Stay well.”
