COVID-19 Policy (04-07-20)

Stilwell Public Library

 Corona-virus Policy

Stilwell Public Library will be closed to the public starting on Tuesday, April 8th.  Because of this we will be enacting a few policy changes in order to meet the needs and concerns of our patrons.  Below are the changes you will be seeing.

  • The Staff will be in the library from Noon – 5:00, Monday – Friday to help you with your reading and computer needs.  At this time, per Governor Reynolds proclamation will no longer be allowed into the library building.


  • Book covers will be wiped down before they leave the library and upon their return.  All items being returned need to be placed in the book drop on the northwest corner of the library building.  All late fees will be suspended for 30 days. 


  •  We will be continuing our Curbside Pick-up program, with a few changes that will allow our patrons to continue to read their next great read!  Patrons can contact us by phone (641-637-4049), by email (, or on Facebook by Messenger with a list of the books that you want to read (the 5 books per patron will remain in effect). Wearing gloves we will gather the books, wipe them down, place them in a bag with your name on it, and place the bag in a tub that will be put on the table in front of the library.  The tub will be located on the table from Noon – 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday for patrons to pick-up their bag of books.  If you are house bound we would be happy to deliver the books to you also. 


  • Do-It-Yourself Storytimes may also be ordered and picked up in this manner.   Also check out Bridges & Libby ebooks, and our Gale Resources on our Website!


  • Please keep yourself and others safe.   We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon!
