Morley Library Hours and Services Through Jan. 17, 2021 Painesville, OH— In response to Lake County entering Level 4/Purple on the Ohio Public Health Advisory Map on Nov. 27, Morley Library’s building has been closed to the public per a policy approved by its Board of Trustees. The following services continue to be offered:

  • Pickup of requested materials at the drive-up window and curbside
  • Information services by phone and email
  • Virtual programming on the Library’s Facebook page and YouTube channel
  • All digital services on the Library’s website, including ebooks, music, movies, and informational databases

Hours of operation are Mon/Wed/Fri 9am – 5pm, Tue/Thu 11am – 7pm, and Saturdays 10am – 2pm.

At this time, there is no public access to Library computers, but patrons may borrow wifi hotspots as availability permits or access the Library’s wifi from the parking lot.

Although the county has recently entered Level 3/Red, the Library will maintain its current level of operations through Jan. 17, 2021, as the county’s Advisory Map level may be shifting between categories in the coming weeks due to holiday gatherings and travel.

“We are committed to continuing to provide materials and services while keeping our patrons and staff as safe as possible during this uncertain time,” said Library Director Aurora Martinez. “We look forward to improvements in the county’s public health advisory status and re-opening our doors after Jan. 18 to offer a safe and welcoming environment for all.”

Morley Library, located at 184 Phelps St. in Painesville, serves the communities of Concord Township, Grand River, Leroy, Painesville City, and Painesville Township. For more information about the library, visit
