COVID-19 Planning and Resources

We will update this page with library information regarding the pandemic as well as provide helpful links to quality information. 

We have developed a phased reopening plan based on the Badger Bounce Back Plan. We will continue to revisit this Plan of Action to help the community understand our actions and provide structure in an unstable time.

You still have access to your library! You can still check out e-books, e-audiobooks, and even read your favorite magazines – all online!

Stuck at home? The Bridges Library System has put together a list of excellent (and free!) resources to keep you and your family occupied while stuck inside. Includes resources for kids and adults! 

School might be closed, but learning never stops! With some many companies offering their content for free, it can be very confusing to know all the resources available to you, so we’ve curated an entire page of FREE educational resources for you to use at home. 

Sources for Information on COVID-19

We are committed to connecting our community with quality resources and recognize that, with the rapidly changing situation and the flood of information, it can be overwhelming to know what is fact and what is dangerously false. Please use these trusted resources to learn more and keep you and your family informed and safe.
