We continue to monitor the situation but it is evident that we will experience severe weather.
Due Dates Extended
Due to the inclement weather, all items with a due date between today, October 6 and Monday, October 10 have been automatically shifted to be due Tuesday, October 11. Holds on items will not expire until October 13. Do not worry about returning or renewing materials during this time. This may be extended depending on the extent of the storm's impact. No one should risk travelling in dangerous conditions in an effort to avoid fines or pick up held items.
Closings & Reopening
In order to give our staff time to prepare their families and homes, the WPPL will close at 2 p.m. and will remain closed through Friday, October 7. As long as the Library has power and running water, it will have a delayed opening at 10 a.m. Saturday, October 8. We know that many in the community will be without power, and will do our best to be open so you can come in to charge devices, contact friends and family, and enjoy the AC. We will do our best to update the Library website and social media with any changes.
All programs after 2 p.m. Thursday, October 6 and all on Friday, October 7 have been cancelled. We intend to have Star Wars Reads Day on Saturday, October 8 although the list of activities may change somewhat.
We wish our entire community all of the best and hope you all weather the storm just fine (possibly in the company of a good book).
