Closure Notice & How to Get a Library Card

Due to health concerns around COVID19 the Nakusp Public Library is closed until further notice. Please keep all Library material at home, the dropbox is locked. All due dates have been extended and fines waived.

The Library building may be closed, but we are still here to help! Now, more than ever, we can highlight that Libraries are not just physical spaces, they are also virtual spaces.

“A library’s function is to give the public in the quickest and cheapest way: information, inspiration, and recreation. If a better way than the book can be found, we should use it.” ― Melvil Dewey (1851-1931)

Libraries across the country are being forced to find a new way to deliver services to our patrons during this unprecedented time. Online resources may not necessarily be “a better way than the book,” yet, while we are all at home in isolation, they are the best way that Libraries can continue to deliver information, inspiration, and recreation.

If you do not have a Library card and you would like to access our online resources, email Please include: name, phone number, and mailing address.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Library once this is over. Stay safe and sane,

Jackie Barber MA, MLIS
Library Director
