Since Scotland County R-1 has cancelled classes through March 27th and the fact that books cannot be fully disinfected, Scotland County Memorial will close on March 17th at 5:30. The library will remain closed through March 30th. This date is subject to change, depending on the situation.
Due dates for DVDs have been extended to 2 weeks and books for 1 month. Protective wrapped DVDs may be placed in the book drop. There will not be any fines for overdue materials during this time.
All the information we have received from the public health community suggests that well-being is best served by a period of social distancing. The only way we can ensure that in our library is by closing the facility.
