Coronavirus Statement from the Bridges Library System

With the spread of the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, the Bridges Library System and the public libraries in Waukesha and Jefferson counties are actively following the Center for Disease Control’s sanitation and hygiene recommendations and protocols to ensure the safety and health of library users and staff. We are also monitoring the situation with a variety of information sources, including those from the Department of Public Instruction, both county public health departments, and the Center for Disease Control.

Updates on public library closures have been posted on the Bridges Library System’s website:

The health and safety of library users and staff are our priority. We encourage anyone who is feeling ill or has recently traveled to a community outbreak area to stay home and not visit the library until the required monitoring time has passed. As a reminder, you can access digital library services, such as ebooks, e-audios, digital magazines, and online classes with your library card at no cost:
