CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION – PUBLIC MEETINGS
The Library is monitoring the on-going developments related to the novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19.

As with the rest of the world, library leadership is monitoring the ongoing developments related to the novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, with great interest. The library takes the safety and well-being of its staff and citizens seriously. We are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the State of Michigan for direction. We encourage you to follow CDC updates and Michigan updates as they become available.

Currently, the Library has decided to continue holding its public meetings electronically. We are holding our meeting electronically for the safety of our Board, staff, and citizens.

In addition, the library will accept written public comments by sending them to this email address, at least an hour before the meeting at which you want your comments to be considered: csouchock@plymouthlibrary.org 

Individuals with disabilities requiring auxiliary aids or services, who wish to attend this board meeting, should notify the Library Director, Carol Souchock, at 734-453-0750, ext. 218. Reasonable advance notice is required. Our agenda and supportive documents will be posted online.

Because this is a continually evolving situation, meetings may be canceled in the future. If that happens, the library will use its best efforts to let citizens know of any cancellations by posting it on our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact: Carol Souchock at csouchock@plymouthlibrary.org or at 734-453-0750, ext. 218.
