Everyone is welcome at Brookens Library. What does that mean during a public health situation like the one we are now experiencing with the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19?
We are monitoring the latest recommendations from the CDC, the Sangamon County Department of Public Health, and University of Illinois system and acting based on accurate information from trusted sources. Because the circumstances are rapidly changing, we may need to adjust our strategies and we will update this page accordingly.
Here’s what you can expect at the library today:
There are lots of ways to utilize the library's resources without visiting in person!
You can also download eBooks; listen to downloadable or streaming audiobooks; stream movies, TV shows, and music; read newspapers; learn new languages, and much more. Browse our website for information about checking out online materials and using our online resources.
The library’s management team is working closely with various offices to adapt our approach as the situation develops. We will update this blog in order to share what we are doing to continue safely serving our diverse community during these complicated times.
This virus does not discriminate by nationality, race, or economic status. By working together, we can try to reduce contagion and protect our most at-risk neighbors and ourselves.
