What Can You Do?

Wash your hands thoroughly and often, stay home with a good book if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms and be social at a distance.  Remember you can access digital materials using your library card through MORE & Libby.

What is the SCFPL doing?

The St Croix Falls Public Library is providing low contact curbside services, virtual services, phone and email services. Staff is in the library Monday through Friday and available to take your phone call or email. We are now offering printing from your device using princh. Find out more at princh.com. 

Our goal is to keep library staff and patrons safe from communicable disease and to mitigate the occurrences of unnecessary exposure and spread of infectious disease. We will continually evaluate the situation.

Meeting room use and programming is cancelled during this time. 

Library materials returned during this time will not be processed immediately, however any late fees will be waived.  You may return items during curbside and on Saturdays through the return slot. They will sit for 96 hours before being processed.

Librarians will be working on curbside and special projects — available to answer the phone 715-483-1777 or email scflibrary@scfpl.org, or use curbside@scfpl.org if you have questions about accessing the digital collection, questions on summer reading programming, or have special circumstances and in need of assistance.
