From the Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library:

The Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library is committed to serving the needs of our community. However, the current COVID-19 situation calls for short-term changes to our hours and services for the safety of our patrons and staff.

Upon reopening Tuesday, June 2, the library will only allow staff inside the building until such time as the director and the library board of trustees deem it safe to allow a limited number of patrons inside the building.

Until further notice, the Library will not hold public events. There will also be no public use of the Library’s meeting room. Public restrooms will also be unavailable.

Summer Library Program will move online and begin July 1, lasting four weeks. Announcements for programs and activities to come soon.
