About Our Response to COVID-19 (The Coronavirus) Outbreak

UPDATED Governor Whitmer has issued an Executive Order which closes places of public accommodation including all libraries.

Beginning as soon as possible but no later than at 3:00 pm March 16, 2020, and continuing until April 13, 2020, at 11:59 pm, libraries are closed to “ingress, egress, use, and occupancy by members of the public”.

Dear Valued Library Member,

The Library will be closed from March 15-April 5!

The Harrison Township Public Library is committed to the health and safety of our guests, our staff, and our community.  In our efforts to combat the spread of the virus, we will be closing our doors from March 15-April 5. We will automatically extend all due dates and waive all fines until we reopen. We ask everyone to PLEASE keep all library materials until we reopen.

While our doors are closed, our staff are still working to provide you with the best possible service. Our librarians are creating digital content like online storytimes and digital programs to help keep our members engaged and informed during this time of social distancing. Check out our Facebook and our YouTube channel to access our digital programs.

Library Program Status

All library programs through April 5th and the DIA bus tour scheduled for April 8th are cancelled EXCEPT the Tax Preparation services scheduled for March 20 and April 3. Since the Tax Preparation service is a one-on-one appointment with a tax professional, we will continue with that event. You will be notified personally if that changes and your appointment is canceled.

We will continue to communicate any further impacts on the library, our programs, our hours, and all our services as necessary. In the meantime, please take full advantage of the many digital resources that you can access from the comfort of your home with your library card at htlibrary.org.

Everyone can play a part in keeping our community healthy. Please visit the following websites to learn more about the federal, state, and local response as well as what you can do to protect yourself.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,

Melissa Goins
Library Director
