The Peter White Public Library is transitioning to Curbside and Digital Library Service only, effective today, in an effort to help curb the community spread of COVID-19 in and around Marquette. “We stand with our healthcare community, said PWPL Library Director Andrea Ingmire. “With hospitals near capacity, we want to do our part to help reduce community spread.”
Curbside Pickup hours at PWPL will be from 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Thursday, and 10 am to 5 pm Friday and Saturday. The book drops will remain open and the library will continue to offer free printing/copying through curbside pickup.
“Out of an abundance of care for our patrons, staff and community members, the Peter White Public Library is transitioning to curbside pickup services and closing our building to the public. This decision was not made lightly. The staff and I have truly enjoyed seeing many of our patrons back in the library over the past months,” said Ingmire. “It is my hope that by complying with the guidelines from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, we will safely welcome the community back into the library soon.”
eLibrary Services will continue at www.pwpl.info, including several virtual programs.
Join the library in December for “A Dickens of a Month,” a month-long celebration of Charles Dickens and ‘A Christmas Carol.’ Other adult and youth programs will also be held virtually.
