Our Response to COVID-19

Beginning Friday, March 20, 2020, all Lincoln City Libraries will be closed to the public except to pick up reserved materials.

Effective at 10 a.m., Friday, March 20, all libraries will offer pickup service only.

The new process is as follows:

  • Users may reserve materials by placing holds via our catalog or by calling 402-441-8500.
  • After receiving notification that reserves are available, users will receive pickup instructions.
  • Pickup procedures and parking options will vary by location. Please note that effective Monday, March 30, South Branch Library is no longer an option for pickup service because its carpeting is being replaced.

Users are not to return books until May 1; due dates are being extended to May 1. We ask that you keep your library materials safe at home. Effective March 27, we are no longer accepting returns of library materials.

For items returned since March 20, and going forward, there will be delays in checkin. If you are monitoring items on your account, please be aware of this delay.

Online materials checked out are automatically returned on their due dates.

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

Williams Branch in Arnold Elementary School will be closed as long as public schools are not in session.

The Lied Bookmobile’s service is suspended until further notice.


All programming is cancelled, and all meeting room reservations are also cancelled.


Please remember that our e-Books and downloadable audiobooks, streaming movies and music, and other online resources remain available.
