Our Response to COVID-19

Here are the answers to our most common questions about Library services during the COVID-19 pandemic:

Are the Libraries open?

All Lincoln City Libraries are open again to the public on their regular schedules. The 10 to 11 a.m. hour on Fridays is reserved for use by those especially vulnerable to illness. 

Effective July 20, face coverings are required in conformity with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department’s Directed Health Measure.

Customers may now enter the libraries to pick up reserved materials. Materials may be reserved online. Front-door pickup of reserved materials can be arranged by calling your preferred branch.

The Lied Bookmobile Schedule is now available

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

Materials can now be returned through our exterior bookdrops at all locations.

Due dates for materials checked out on or before June 10 have been extended to July 1. Materials checked out starting June 11 will have a due date three weeks after the checkout date.

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 cannot be accepted at this time. If you have Interlibrary Loan checkouts and have questions about their due dates, please contact our Interlibrary Loan office at 402-441-8537.

What about your storytimes and other programs?

All regular Library programming is cancelled until further notice.

From September 9 through November 20virtual Toddler Storytimes and Pre-K Storytimes will be available via our Facebook page at 9:30 a.m. Wednesdays, and virtual Preschool Storytimes will be available at 8:00 p.m. Wednesdays!

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?

All meeting room reservations are cancelled until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.
