To address the ongoing COVID-19 situation:

  • Following National, State, and our local Emergency Declarations regarding COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, all Suffolk Public Library locations will be closed to the public from Monday, March 16, 2020 until further notice.
  • All classes through the end of April have been cancelled. Our online calendar will be updated as needed. 
  • People can call and sign up for a library card over the phone to get instant access to digital materials (757-514-7323 M-F, 9am-5pm)
  • Books will be automatically renewed, holds have been extended and no bills are being issued while we’re closed. WiFi2Gos will not be deactivated if currently checked out. If a book has a hold on it, it will not be auto-renewed but customers can still hold onto those books as no bills will be issued.
