Everett Public Library News Release

Posted on: March 12, 2020

COVID-19 Information and Updates

In response to the growing COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic, the Everett Public Library has ceased all public service operations and will focus on digital content and social media services until further notice.



Digital Resources
Everett Public Library offers many electronic resources that can be accessed 24/7, when you can’t get to the Library or you’re stuck at home.  Visit epls.org/apps to learn how to borrow eBooks, eAudiobooks, and your favorite magazines using the Libby app. Borrow comics, music, movies and shows on Hoopla and stream movies and documentaries using Kanopy. Consider learning a new skill with Lynda or a language with Mango. The library also provides remote access to several databases, including news resources (Newsbank and ProQuest) and health information from trusted sources (Consumer Health Complete, Medline Plus, and Merck Manuals).

Already have items at home?
For those of you who have borrowed Library materials in your possession, do not fear the due date – we are extending loan periods during this time, so you do not need to return materials until we are back in full operation.


We will miss you!

We recognize that many rely on our services, and we will continue to provide updates on social media and our website, epls.org, as we look for new ways to serve the community during this difficult period. Thank you for your continued support and understanding and we will miss seeing all of you at the library!
