Are Weber County Libraries closed?
All locations closed at 12 noon on Tuesday, March 17. All events, programs, and outreach have been canceled, along with meeting room reservations. This was a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
How long will the libraries be closed?
Weber County Libraries will be closed to the public at least from Tuesday, March 17 through Wednesday, April 1, tentatively. At this time, we will determine if it is prudent to reopen.
Will the buildings be staffed during the closure?
Yes, Weber County Library staff will be on site at all locations. At this time, the Library has no reason to believe any of our staff or patrons has come into contact with Coronavirus. While we are closed, buildings, materials, furniture, and equipment will be scrubbed and sanitized in anticipation of welcoming community members back to their libraries as soon as is recommended by public health officials.
What if I have materials checked out? Will they be overdue?
Due dates for all materials checked out have been extended until Tuesday, April 7. Outside materials handling systems and book drops will be open 24 hours a day to accept returns. During these unique circumstances, DVDs may also be returned to the book drop.
Are materials still available while the Libraries are closed?

Can I sign up for a library card while the Libraries are closed?
