Summit County Library Update
Summit County Library Update - 4-20-21
We plan to open all branches on Monday, May 3rd. We are excited to welcome everyone back inside the library and appreciate your support as we move into the next phase of reopening.
A few things to keep in mind when visiting the library beginning May 3rd:
- The library buildings are open for holds pickup, browsing, and computer sessions. Curbside hold delivery is still available for anyone who would prefer that service.
- Only a limited number of people can be in the building at a time. Because of this, we ask that you keep your visit (including computer sessions and use of any study spaces) to one hour or less. This will also allow more people to access materials and services.
- There will be a limited number of computers available. Cash cannot be accepted for printing and copying services at the Coalville and Kamas branches. The Kimball Junction Branch has a coin-op machine. Wireless printing is available at the Kimball Junction Branch if you don't need to use a library computer.
- Some items might not be in public areas for now, including children’s toys, board games, etc. These items will be added back into these spaces when we can do so safely.
- If you're feeling sick, please stay home. Hand sanitizer will be provided. Please maintain 6-foot social distancing while in the buildings.
- While not required, facemasks are encouraged for extra safety.
- Outdoor workspaces and Wi-Fi are available at all branches.

We have boosted our free Wi-Fi to the parking lots and installed outdoor work spaces at all Summit County Library branches. Although our buildings are still closed to the public, these outdoor spaces are always available on a first-come, first-served basis. We appreciate the hard work of the Summit County Facilities and IT Departments to get these spaces ready! They have been key in helping us provide services to the community while keeping everyone as safe as possible. The Wi-Fi network name is LibraryWiFi and the password is booksarefun.

How to Place and Pick Up Your Holds
- Place your hold in our online catalog using your library card number and PIN. If you require assistance, please call your branch location directly.
- Receive a notification confirming your hold is ready for pick up. Please wait until this notification is received before coming to the library.
- Arrive at the library – please follow any signage posted.
- Park in the designated Curbside Hold Delivery stalls and call the number listed on the sign. Your identification will be verified over the phone.
- Please wait in your vehicle while we bring your items to you.
Items will be checked out for the standard two weeks and may be renewed unless the item is on hold for another patron. We have increased the hold/checkout limit to 20 items per card.
Please return materials to our outdoor book returns; our staff is unable to accept items directly. We will check in materials using sanitation guidance from the Summit County Health Department. Please note that items will appear on your account for up to one week after being returned to allow our staff time to properly process all materials. As always, no late fines will accrue for overdue items.
