FVRL libraries closing to public

Closure to begin at the end of business day on Sat., March 14

VANCOUVER – After much discussion with its staff and Board of Trustees, and in accordance with public health guidance concerning the COVID-19 outbreak, Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries has made the difficult decision to close its libraries to the public starting at the end of business on Sat., March 14. Libraries will remain closed at least through Sun., March 29.

During the next few weeks, the district will take advantage of the closures to thoroughly clean all locations and to create plans on how to restart services as soon as possible.

The library is extending loan periods for those who have already checked out materials, and are adjusting holds for materials accordingly. Digital resources such as electronic books and audiobooks, streaming movies and music, and online databases are also still available via the FVRLibraries’ website. As always, Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries does not charge late fees for overdue items.
