Libraries re-open to in-person visits this week

NCW - Customers will are once again be able to browse the shelves, access computer stations, read the newspaper, or pick out a DVD. 
Gov. Jay Inslee announced on Thursday, Feb. 11 that most of the state  — including all five counties in the library district — will move to Phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan.

For library patrons who prefer minimal contact service, curbside pickup will continue to be offered at all branches. The library is also working to expand service hours and availability, which it plans to launch in March.
 NCW Libraries will continue to offer a wide variety of resources and programs online at and on its Facebook page. Upcoming virtual programs include STEM workshops, Book-It-Theater performances, author visits, and more.
