The Paris Public Library has been closed for nearly a week, and have since advised they will re-open the doors this Thursday, July 30.
“If you have materials you are returning, please DO NOT put them in the book drops. Keep them until we re-open,” they advised via their social media account on Facebook.
The library also said they would waive any fines that might accrue on items borrowed when they open.
After news of a staff member testing positive for COVID-19 on July 16, the library shut the doors temporarily to adhere to correct CDC guidelines. They encouraged anyone who visited the building on July 9 and 10 to monitor their health for any possible coronavirus symptoms.
