St. Joseph County Public Library cancels all programs but branches remain open

The St. Joseph County Public Library is among the local institutions taking preventative measures against coronavirus.

To that effect, they have canceled all programs and meeting room bookings through April 18. Branches are still open during regular business hours.

The library’s leadership says that branches are asking employees and volunteers to stay home if sick. Staff members are also sanitizing doorknobs, keyboards, self-checkout stations, and bathrooms.

For those who prefer to access the library from home, you can visit for a collection of audiobooks, ebooks, magazines, movies, and music. You can also learn about local history at the Michiana Memory website or take an online course.

“This is a difficult and uncertain time. We are all in this together. The Public Library is here for you and can answer questions about where to find information about COVID-19,” the library says in a news release.
