LIBRARY CLOSED

Update 26 March: In accordance with Weber County order 2020-03 we will be closed through 26 April 2020.

The Webster County Library will close beginning at 5pm Tuesday, March 17th, and remain closed through at least April 5th. This has been a difficult decision for the Library. We know that libraries are vital hubs in our communities, especially in difficult times. However, we also value the health and safety of our customers and staff above all else. The information we have received from the public health community suggests that the well-being of our customers and staff is best served by closing our facilities. This is the one situation where we best serve our community by being closed, so we don’t inadvertently spread disease.

Our book drops will also be closed, so please keep your materials at home until the Library reopens. All due dates have been extended through April 6th and no fines will be charged during this time.

We encourage you to go to our website at webstercounty.lib.mo.us to explore our online resources including Tumblebooks for kids, Missouri Libraries to Go for free eBooks and eAudiobooks.

We are committed to reopening as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay well!

Please take note!

As a precaution to prevent the spread of corona-virus the Webster County Library has decided to cancel all library programs and close our meeting rooms to public use until at least March 31.  Our libraries will remain open and operating as normal with the above exception.  If you are ill or exhibiting flu-like symptoms we ask that you do not visit our library facilities.  Please call 417-468-3335 if you would like to renew materials you have out or to ask questions about your account.  Thank you for understanding the cancellation of our programs and meeting room use at this time.

 

Stuck at home or wanting to avoid germs? Don’t forget you can access free eBooks and eAudio from home via our website by choosing the eBooks tab and choosing Missouri Libraries 2 Go.

The 2020 Census at the Webster County Library

The U.S. Constitution requires that a Census, or a count of the United States population, be held every ten years. THIS is that year. Beginning in March, each household will be required to fill out a questionnaire about who lives at that address. For the first time ever you can go online to fill out your census questionnaire. The Webster County Library has several public use computers available to complete your 2020 Census safely and securely!

Most households will receive an invitation to complete their census online in the mail beginning in the middle of March. Even if you haven’t received an invitation, you can still complete your 2020 Census, all you’ll need is your address.

Not computer savvy? You still have the traditional methods of answering your census available. Phone calls to the Census Bureau will also be accepted beginning mid-March, or wait for your paper copy to be mailed to you, fill it out, and then simply mail it back.

The WCL staff are here to help make sure that everyone in Webster County is counted for the 2020 Census. Your accuracy ensures funding for many Webster County programs and services, INCLUDING the Webster County Library. Stop by today to see a sample of the 2020 Census Questionnaire and to get answers to any questions you might have.
