Painesville - On May 3, 2021, Morley Library's building will reopen to the public with safety guidelines in place including a mask requirement and limited access to certain areas. All programs and events will continue to be virtual until further notice.

The library's hours of operation will continue to be Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9am - 5pm, Tuesday/Thursday 11am - 7pm, and Saturdays 10am - 2pm.

The building was closed to the public in October 2020 due to worsening pandemic conditions but continued to provide services remotely. Borrowing services have remained available via the library's drive-up window and curbside. Staff have been available to assist patrons via phone and email, and virtual programming has continued on the library's Facebook page and YouTube channel. 

Library Director Aurora Martinez said "We've missed seeing our patrons and are grateful that the increased availability of COVID-19 vaccines has made conditions safer for both staff and patrons. We look forward to welcoming our patrons back for browsing and engaging with our staff in person."

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
