Corona-19 Policy

Stilwell Public Library

 Coronavirus Policy

Stilwell Public Library will be closed to the public starting on Thursday, March 19th.  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.


  • 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 also be instituting a new program 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) and we will gather them and you can pick them up at the curb the next day!  If you are house bound we would be happy to deliver the books to you also. 


  • Patron Computers may be used by patrons by appointment only.  We understand that many are working on their taxes, wanting to do their part to complete the census, filing for unemployment, or staying in touch with family and friends around the world.  Again, be sure to give us a call or email to schedule your appointment. 


  • Story time is suspended until further notice.  Please watch our Facebook page for distance programming that we are organizing now.
