Library Re-Opening

We know the people of Everett depend on the wide variety of services the Everett Public Library provides which is why we are excited to welcome customers back into our buildings, beginning Tuesday, March 2. Both locations will be open at 25% capacity for limited services, including browsing and computer use. We will continue working with the City of Everett, Governor’s Office and Snohomish Health District monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and follow their guidance.

When you visit the library again, you’ll notice that our spaces and services look a bit different. We have made these changes to keep you and our staff safe. While we are looking forward to seeing people in person, we encourage customers to use our curbside pickup  and to keep your visits brief.  Here’s what you can expect when library buildings reopen.
