Library again closed to the public due to COVID-19
By Guest Columnist Denise L. Saucier
The Long Beach Public Library is again closed to the public to help reduce the number of COVID-19 cases in our area.
However, our dedicated staff is still working and available for curb-side services. Patrons may call the library to request up to five items.
In addition, there will be no late fines charged for the foreseeable future, and items on hold can still be picked up.
Please call the library when you arrive, and items will be brought out to you. Items to be returned can be put in the outside book drop. You may also come by to drop off or pick up Summer Reading information or packets.
Please call the library to make your requests and when you arrive.
Also, with your library patron number, you can log into your account and see what you have checked out, put items on reserve, and renew your items that are able to be renewed. To do this, visit https://longbeach.biblionix.com/catalog/.
At the top right, where it says "Log into your account," put your patron number that is on the back of your library card (exclude the "P"), then put in the phone number that we have on file for you.
If you have any questions, or to make a curb-side request, please call us at 228-863-0711. Questions can also be e-mailed to us at LongBeachLibrary@cableone.net.
