As COVID-19 cases continue to increase in the area, Shreve Memorial Library is taking precautionary steps to ensure the safety of patrons and staff, and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the library branches.
Effective immediately, all Shreve Memorial Library programs, including story times, movie screenings, workshops, classes, book signings, and after school programs, are canceled until further notice, as is the use of meeting rooms and study rooms at the library branches.
Additionally, the Wallette Branch, located at 363 Hearne Avenue, will be closed until further notice due to staffing shortages. Library patrons are encouraged to use other Shreve Memorial Library branches while the branch is closed. A complete list of branch locations and hours is available at www.shreve-lib.org.
Shreve Memorial Library branches are open throughout Caddo Parish for browsing and checkouts, computer access, reference help, Readers’ Advisory, printing and faxing services, and curbside pickup. All visitors to Shreve Memorial Library branches ages five and older must wear a face mask to enter, and face masks are required at all times while in the library branch.
Patrons are also encouraged to utilize Shreve Memorial Library’s e-Branch to access services such as Hoopla, Overdrive, Flipster and Libby to download audiobooks, ebooks, magazines and videos and to stream music. Library cardholders can also access the Louisiana state Library Database through the e-Branch for access to Homework Louisiana, Pronunciator, and other school, career, and research databases.
