SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Because of COVID-19 concerns, the Sioux City Public Library and South Sioux City Public Library are closing their doors indefinitely.

According to their website, the Sioux City Public Library says all materials currently checked out will be renewed and all fines will be waived during this period. Book drops at the library will also be open and holds will be extended.

However, those who have a library card can still access all of the library's digital resources from the Sioux City Public Library's website.

The South Sioux City Public Library was open for one last day Tuesday before also closing indefinitely. The library opened for select hours on March 17 for members of the public to come and take care of some last-minute business.

This allowed people to access the Internet and borrow materials before the library shuts down.

The director of the library says they will still service the community even though they're closing.

"We still have a lot of resources, we're still here hard at work, answering phone calls and answering questions and things like that, so we're still able to do a lot for people just without being open the amount of hours that we're normally open," said Cicely Douglas, Library Director for the South Sioux City Public Library.

The South Sioux Public Library has also waived late fees for four weeks and still accepts book returns.

If you need assistance from the South Sioux City Public Library, you can call them at 402-494-7545.
