SANDWICH – The Sandwich Public Library will be closed until further notice due to staff exposure to COVID-19, according to library staff.

According to a Thursday news release from the library, library staff will be testing and undergoing a two week quarantine period to ensure safety and wellness.

"We are so incredibly heartbroken that we must once again close our doors, but the safety of both our staff and our patrons is of the [utmost] importance to us," library staff wrote.

Book returns will be closed until staff is back in the building, according to the news release. Patrons should keep checked out library material to return at a later day and no late fees will occur.

All pick-up and outdoor programming is suspended at this time, the release read. Most online and virtual programs for both youth and adults will still occur.

During closure, library staff will be able to be contacted via email.
