To all patrons and citizens of Goodland and of Grant Township, Indiana.  Like

you, we are concerned about protecting health and safety during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

This is why the Goodland-Grant Township Public Library will temporarily close beginning “Tuesday March 17th” to help contain the spread of COVID-19. The library will likely reopen when the local school corporation reopens.  Please check our library web site or our Facebook page for updates. 

Take care of yourselves, your communities, and your information intake  to make sure you’re following verified coronavirus sources to help “separate findings from feelings”.  As we all work to contain this outbreak, the library extends its special appreciation to those in health care, medicine, research and other fields leading the frontline response.

We take these steps now to protect the health and safety of the library guests, staff, and volunteers, so that we may more quickly welcome you back to our community library.

Hope To See You Soon, 

The Library Staff And Board Of Trustees

COVID-19 & Goodland Public Library

GPL is closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in Indiana.

Here’s what you need to Know:

  • We have elevated our normal cleaning procedures and thoroughly disinfect shared surfaces and high traffic areas (such as doors, counters, and computers) daily.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at all desks. However, we urge the public to remember that hand washing (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds) is the single most effective thing you can do to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • GPL has no plans to close or alter hours or services at this time. If this changes, patrons will be notified via social media, and our website.
  • And finally, please stay home if you are sick. The library is a shared public space, and it will take your cooperation to keep it safe for both staff and other library users.
