Woodland Public Library institutes closure in response to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic 


Effective at 7pm today, Monday, March 16, the Woodland Public Library (WPL), including Square One, will be closed until further notice to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Like libraries throughout California, the United States, and the world, this decision was made out of the utmost concern for the health, safety and well-being of library patrons, library staff, and the community. The scientific evidence that social distancing can help stop the spread of COVID-19 is a compelling factor in taking this precautionary step.

“Public libraries have always been about community, and the safety of our communities is paramount,” said WPL Director Greta Galindo. “We value your understanding of our decision during this challenging time.”

During the closure, no materials will be due, no fines will accrue, and all holds will be frozen. Materials can be returned in the outdoor book drop. Library staff will continue to work while buildings are closed.

During the closure, patrons are encouraged to use WPL’s online resources and services. City of Woodland residents can sign up by phone (530-661-5980) or email (library@cityofwoodland.org) for a digital eCard for access to:

As the situation continues to evolve, WPL will follow mandates from California State Governor Gavin Newsom, the California State Library, the Yolo County Department of Public Health, and the City of Woodland in order to assess when it is safe to reopen our libraries.
