NAMPA, Idaho — The Nampa Library Board of Trustees met Wednesday to discuss the Library closure and plans moving forward. With news of Governor Little’s statewide stay-home order for 21 days, the Library Board unanimously voted to extend the Nampa Library closure indefinitely for the safety of staff and community.
As of now, emails and phone calls are still being answered on a limited basis during the closure and Library staff is still looking at ways to continue serving the public during this time. Until the Nampa Library reopens, patrons are asked to hold on to any materials currently checked out. All due dates have been extended to June 1. The outdoor book drop is closed, and no returns are allowed at this time.
In order to comply with the Governor’s orders, we are moving completely to virtual services.
One of these new services include a temporary digital library card. This card is for Nampa residents over the age of 18 who currently do not have a library card. This card will allow residents to borrow items from the Nampa Public Library’s digital resources and will be active until 6/1/2020. You may apply for this card at nampalibrary.org/digitalcard. The Library’s e-resources are available at nampalibrary.org/elibrary.
The Nampa Library is also currently offering mobile printing and mailing of documents. The Library will charge for the printing, but the postage is free. If you need a document printed, visit nampalibrary.org/printservice.
The Nampa Library will continue to monitor the COVID-19 public health updates and will keep the community informed of what the Library is doing via their website (nampalibrary.org/coronavirus) and social media channels. The health and safety of staff and community is our highest priority at this unprecedented time.
