In alignment with state and local guidelines, the Clearview Library District’s Windsor-Severance Library is closed as of March 16 to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

“We’re joining public entities across the community, region, and state in helping combat the spread of Coronavirus,” said Board of Trustees President Rochelle Brotsky. “We don’t want to take any chances with the health and safety of our community and staff.”

During the closure:

  • All in-person events, programs, and classes will be cancelled.
  • No items will be due while the library is closed and all bookdrops will be closed for returns.
  • All items checked out as of March 1 will not be due until May 15.
  • Items on hold will not expire and new holds will be disabled on physical items until the library reopens. Any holds that are ready for pickup will remain and will be available when the library reopens.

While the Clearview Library District is closed to the public, digital services are always accessible 24/7. Cardholders can read e-books and e-magazines, listen to e-audiobooks and music, and watch movies and TV shows for free:

Staff will use this period to continue to progress the library’s efforts.
