COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019)

Chippewa Falls Public Library will remain closed until at least April 24 in compliance with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services “Safer at Home” emergency order.

During this time, the library will not be accepting returned materials. When the library reopens, late fees will be waived for a week.

Please check back to the library website (https://chippewafallslibrary.org/) and social media for updates and electronic resources you can utilize during the closure.

While there have not been any confirmed cases in Chippewa County, and the risk for area residents remains low, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending individuals protect themselves and their families by taking everyday precautions such as regular handwashing for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching their face, clean and disinfect high-touch areas regularly, and avoid all non-essential travel. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services also recently recommended cancelling all non-essential events and programs for groups of 50 or more people, and provided guidance on considerations for cancellations of smaller events.

Like many of you, library staff has been monitoring the news about the coronavirus (COVID19). We want to keep our staff, patrons, and community healthy and safe. The library is following guidance from the Chippewa County Department of Public Health and CDC concerning how to respond to the virus and what preventative measures we should implement.

The library will be closed until further notice. The library offers several digital collections such as eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, and streaming film if you don’t want to visit. Check our website and catalog for those resources: https://www.chippewafallslibrary.org/
