Summer Fun!

Download your Summer Fun Packets!
Summer is the best time of year at the library, but this is a year like no other. We want to deliver some low-stress fun right to your home during these stressful times. This year, instead of Summer Reading tickets, tracking, and prize deadlines, we've created Summer Fun Packets. These include bingo boards to inspire your summer activities, as well as activity sheets to help the fun along.

Do any or all of the activities at your own pace and just for fun. Share the activities you're doing on our Facebook page on Summer Fun Saturdays!

Library Returns

Book Drop Hours
Starting Thursday, June 4, the library will be accepting returns during the following hours:
Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Thursdays, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The book drops will be unlocked during these times ONLY. Weather permitting, we will implement no-touch returns by pulling the book drop carts out so you may simply drop your returns in without having to touch the book drop handles. Library staff will be available to empty the book drops as they fill up, but the library building itself remains closed to the public. All returns will be quarantined for 7 days BEFORE they are checked in, so please note they will remain on your library account during this time. No fines are being charged during this period. We will continue these return hours and procedures for approximately three weeks, then we will evaluate when to begin curbside pickup. Thank you for helping make this process a success.

The library is closed until further notice. We currently have no set date to restart in-person library services. Any expansion of services will depend on safe procedures for staff and patrons, using every caution as we make these changes. We are so grateful to serve a community like Winfield, that has been supportive of our efforts to keep staff and patrons as safe as possible during this time. Thank you for your patience as we constantly evaluate this situation.

Please check our Facebook page. This will be the best place to check for further updates during this time.
