Coronavirus [COVID-19] Information

The library is closing in response to COVID-19.

    Poplar Bluff Municipal Library has made the difficult decision to close until further notice. This decision was made in response to COVID-19 based on recommendations at the federal, state, and local levels. We have provided a great list of reliable resources about COVID-19 here on our website.

    While our building will be closed, we encourage everyone to use their library card to borrow and download from our digital library. The library has a large digital collection to which your library card gives you access. Need a library card during this closure? Learn more about applying for an ecard.

    We know there is no substitute for a visit to your library. We are committed to getting our library reopened as soon as it is safe. In the meantime, we will be working to find ways to increase what we can offer electronically during the closure and we will communicate through our web page, Facebook, and Instagram with you as anything changes.

Here are some important things to know while we are closed:
