Erie Community Library Will Have Curbside Service Only Beginning November 21

On November 16th, 2020, the High Plains Library District Board of Trustees made the decision to work with local municipalities to determine levels of service and potential closures due to increases in cases of COVID-19.

On November 18th, 2020, Town of Erie Mayor Jennifer Carroll stated:

The Town will be moving to the state’s level “red” this Friday. Looking at the thresholds to move to this level for both Weld and Boulder counties shows that the criteria has been met.

Due to this move, Erie Community Library will be closed for all services other than curbside holds pickup and materials dropoff.

At this time, our other branches remain open as they have been for the past several months, though they have all moved to a lower, modified capacity.

Erie’s curbside service has been modified, and appointments are not necessary. You can put your items on hold, and after being notified they’re ready for pick up, you can drive to Erie Community Library, park, and call 720-685-5207 to have your items brought out to you. More details here.

You may still drop off materials, and this is easier than ever with Erie’s new drive-up bookdrop.

Of course, all digital services, such as streaming and downloadable books, audiobooks, movies, and music are still available 24/7.

Thank you for sticking with us. HPLD is very fortunate to be part of the Erie community, and we will continue to innovate and do our best to find new, better ways to serve under these unusual and often difficult circumstances.
