SEGUIN PUBLIC LIBRARY BOARD UPDATED ANNOUNCEMENT 30/03/2020

The Seguin Public Library Board has determined that given the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the closure of the libraries will now extend until April 30th, 2020. The Board will be closely monitoring the evolving situation to determine the soonest possible, responsible, reopening date. We will continue to monitor and respond to emails and messages sent to the library branches.

Please DO NOT return your library items until further notice or until the libraries’ reopening to avoid any possibility of spreading the virus on surfaces. All fines for late items during this closure will be waived. Our Wi-Fi networks will still be accessible from the parking lot as well.
