In an effort to keep our patrons, volunteers and staff healthy, and reduce opportunities of transmission of the COVID-19, the Town of Johnsburg Library is closed until further notice. No fines will be charged while we are closed.
We cannot control COVID-19, but we can regulate our response to it, and be thoughtful about how we interact and have contact with others, be sure to take ample preventative measures (wash your hands!), keep ourselves healthy, and self-quarantine if we are sick.
