Our Response to COVID-19

Updated August 25, 2021. Here are the answers to our most common questions about Library services during the COVID-19 pandemic:

Are the Libraries open? Can I use a computer?

All Lincoln City Libraries are open again to the public on their regular schedules. There are no longer restrictions on the length of your visit to the Library within normal operating hours.

Effective August 26, 2021, masks are required for all individuals ages two and older, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are available on request for patrons who do not have their own.

Please do not enter if you:

  • have COVID-19
  • are awaiting test results
  • have been exposed to COVID-19
  • have COVID-19 symptoms

The Lied Bookmobile Schedule is available here.

Effective May 21, 2021, up to four computer sessions per day are allowed. Online computer reservations are available again.

When can I return items I have checked out? When are items that I already have checked out due?

Materials can now be returned at all locations. Items returned on or after May 21, 2021 will no longer be quarantined.

Please remember that our e-Books and downloadable audiobooks from OverDrive, streaming movies and music from Hoopla, and other online resources remain available. Online materials checked out are automatically returned on their due dates.

Interlibrary Loan requests are again being accepted. If you have Interlibrary Loan checkouts and have questions about their due dates, please contact our Interlibrary Loan office at 402-441-8537.

Are you accepting donations?

Donations of books and other materials are accepted on Saturdays only. Space available for donated materials is limited; please check with the specific library location before bringing materials to donate.

What about your storytimes and other programs?

We are holding Outdoor Library Learning Times this summer and fall, weather permitting. Check the library’s Facebook page @LNKlibraries for weather related announcements.

Small programs for teens and adults may also resume soon.

Please check here for information about our Virtual Storytimes and other online options!

Other virtual programs are being made available through our Facebook page; videos of most of these are also available shortly afterward on this page and on our YouTube channel.

My group had a meeting room reserved. Will we still be able to meet at the Library?
