ATTN: The Chanute Library now open with limited hours to patrons by appointment. From 9:30 - 10:30 am, the library will have a senior patrons only hour. The library will close at 1:15 pm every day for a deep clean of the building and reopen at 3 pm. The library will also be closed every Wednesday to allow our staff to clean and catch up. 

Please return materials in the outside book and media drops. We are continuing to offer curbside services on these dates:

Tuesdays: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Thursdays: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Patrons can place holds on items through seknfind.org or call or email us with your requests. Once we have gathered your order, we will contact you to make an appointment.

Masks are encouraged. Social distancing is needed. Precautions include cleaning high touch surfaces throughout the day and a mid-day cleaning break for deeper cleaning. Recommended quarantine processes are followed. Each returned item is quarantined for 3 days before it can be checked out again.
