Effective immediately, the Platteville Public Library will close to the public until further notice to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. During the closure, library patrons are encouraged to keep all items that are currently checked out to them. All due dates will be extended, and no late fees will accrue through April 30. Patrons can access ebooks and audiobooks through Wisconsin’s Digital Library available on the Overdrive or Libby apps, learn more about this online resource by visiting wplc.overdrive.com.

As the situation continues to evolve, the Platteville Public Library will follow mandates from Governor Tony Evers, and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
