HENDERSON, Ky. — The Henderson County Public Library closed to in-person services Wednesday and will remain closed Thursday.
However, the computer lab will remain open.
Interim Director Amber Potts said the closure is due to several staff members being in quarantine due to COVID exposure.
Potts said curb-side service will be available to patrons during closure.
“The Carnegie side of the building will remain open for computer use, but people should make an appointment to be let in at the Main Street entrance,” Potts said.

This is the second time in two months that the library has reverted to curbside service due to staff being exposed to the Coronavirus or testing positive for it.
In late September, the library closed to in-person services for several days after a staff member tested positive for the virus. Staff conducted deep-cleaning and reopened within four days.
The institution — like so many others — is navigating the twists and turns of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Henderson library closed in March and stayed that way until late August due to the virus and renovation and construction. Patrons were able to use online resources and curbside pickup services during that time.
