Huntington Library to Switch to Curbside-Only

The Huntington Public Library will switch to curbside-only service Monday because of concerns about Covid-19.

Both the Main Street main building and the Huntington Station branch will make the change.

“We are doing this in the hopes that it will prevent us from closing altogether if things get much worse. I’m not sure how long this will be, but we’ll continue to monitor all the numbers and act accordingly,” Library Director Joann Adam said.

“We have been closely monitoring all developments pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to increasing number of cases in the area along with several staff members testing positive, out of an abundance of caution, and in order to protect the health and well-being of our patrons and staff, Administration and the Board of Trustees have determined it necessary to offer Curbside Service only effective Monday,  for the foreseeable future,” the library said.
