Library closure due to coronavirus

In order to comply with the state’s recommendation to maintain social distancing due to the novel COVID-19 virus, the Garrard County Public Library will be closed to the public until further notice.  All items currently checked out will have their due dates extended to when the library reopens and all fines incurred during this period will be forgiven.

We would recommend all patrons take this time to utilize our digital offerings, including free downloadable e-books, audio books, music, movies and magazines.  Please visit us at and click on the downloadable tab on the top action bar. 

We will miss our daily interactions with our patrons, but feel that this is the best way to protect vulnerable members of our community from this virus.  Thank you for your understanding during this troubling time period.  If you have questions, please e-mail us at
