Library Closed Until Further Notice

Early spring crocuses lean into the light.
Effective Saturday, March 14, physical access to the Library is closed to the public until further notice. Please check out our website - use the Online Resources tab at the top of this page - for electronic access to ebooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, newspapers, music, and databases!

If you have materials out, you may keep them until we reopen, or return them to our outside book drop. The items may not be checked in and removed from your account for several days, but do not worry about late fines as we don't charge them and we will remove fines if the item was loaned by a library that does.

If you find you cannot access Online Resources because of fines on your account, call or email  the Library. We'll get you access.

If you need help using any of the Online Resources, call or email the Library and we'll help you figure it out and get you access.

If you don't know your library card number or password, call or email the Library. We'll get you access.

If you do not have a library card, call or email us and we will set up an account for you if we can verify you are a Heath resident. We'll get you access.

 If you need Internet access, our WiFi extends into the parking lot around Sawyer Hall. You can park and hop on - just stay in your car. The WiFi network is called HeathFreePublicLibrary. There is no password required.

We will be  regularly checking phone messages and email throughout the week, so please reach out to us if you have questions or concerns. I apologize for the inconvenience, but rest assured that this is not an overreaction. Safety of our patrons and staff is our first priority.  Many of you already use the Library electronically, and we are here to help those who are just beginning.

Thank you for your patience as we all strive to make our way safely through these trying times.
