leave a comment »

This limited service will be available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 10 am – 4 pm and Saturday 12 pm – 2 pm.

Patrons with active library cards can reserve items online or call 205-487-2484.
You will set up a time to pick up your items outside the front entrance.
All return items must be returned in the outside book/media deposit on the sidewalk.
PLEASE have your items in a bag if it is raining.

You can view our collection online by going to http://www.winfieldpubliclibrary.com
At the top of the page click the Library Search link. This will let you search or browse our collection.

You have 2 choices to reserve items:

  1. 1. You can call the library at 205-487-2484 and tell staff what you would like to borrow and set up a time for pickup.
  2. 2. While viewing the library catalog, you should see an account log on option in the top right corner.
    Username will be your first initial and last name, all lower case.
    Password will be your library card number. Your library card number is located on the back of your card, use the barcode numbers.
    After you log on you can click on the items you would like to checkout, then click on the reserve button.
    When you see the message “Item reserved successfully” you can click the top right X and continue to browse and reserve.
    You will still be limited to 6 items with a 2 movie/TV series limit.
    The library staff will get a notification that you have placed items on reserve.
    The staff will gather your items then call or text you when they are available to be picked up.
    You need to be sure we have your current phone number on file.

We ask that patrons stay in their vehicle and call the library at 205-487-2484 to inform staff you are in the parking lot.
The staff will let you know if your items are ready and will place on a table outside in a bag with your name attached.
We ask that all patrons follow social distancing protocols while waiting for your items.
6 feet spacing will be marked outside but waiting in your car will be the best procedure.

Safely reopening the library in phases. Please be patient as the library remains closed until further notice.

The Covid-19 virus has had an unprecedented impact on the library and the communities we serve.
Our plan to reopen is dependent on factors such as recommendations from local and national health agencies,
social distancing protocols, critical community needs, and a sustained reduction in new Covid-19 cases within
the community for at least 14 days. The primary consideration is maintaining the safety of library patrons and staff
while finding ways to provide necessary services that the library is uniquely positioned to perform.

NO DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME – NO EXCEPTIONS!

PHASE III will be announced ASAP. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Winfield Public Library Closed(until further notice) – 03/15/2020

leave a comment »

With consideration of decisions by state and local officials, school systems, and public health departments, the Winfield Public Library Board of Trustees have made the decision to close the library to the public effective immediately until further notice. This includes cancellation of all library programming.

We are closing to protect the health of our staff, our city, and our patrons, for which we care deeply. Closing sooner will offer greater benefit to the social distancing effort to limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus in Marion County.

Don’t worry about things like overdue books or returning items. All physical materials currently checked out will have due dates extended until we reopen. All holds that were placed will be waiting for you to pick up when we reopen.

We hope you understand that to interrupt our mission of providing access to information, ideas, and experiences is something we do only because we feel we have no other choice. Please stay safe, monitor your health, follow guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control.

We look forward to seeing you again when we reopen, and in the meantime, please take care of yourself and those around you.

All those who make a collage will receive a free signed limited edition poster (choosing from a selection of over 14 different prints), compliments of the artist. 

In the past decade Albert has brought this program to over 1,000 libraries & museums all over the USA & in Europe & this will be his second time bringing his art to Alabama for his Summer Reading Pop Art Tour. This will be Albert’s first visit to Winfield!
