The Carnegie-Stout Public Library has ended its temporary curbside service. Despite solid safety practices, the health of the public and staff is of utmost importance. The library wants to do all it can to prevent the further potential spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve” by encouraging people to stay home. Additionally, checked-out materials do not need returned at this time. Patrons may keep items until the library reopens on April 13. As a reminder, the library does not charge late fees and the seven-day past due account freeze will be temporarily waived. Even though the library is closed, library cardholders who reside in the City of Dubuque can access the digital collection 24/7 via the library website (www.dubuque.lib.ia.us). Those without a library card can also access free ebooks for children and teens from TumbleBooks through the library website.
