Inclement Weather Policy:

Emergency Closings

While the Library recognizes its obligation to provide regular hours of service, the safety of the public and the Library staff are of paramount importance. Changes in hours of operation may be necessary due to emergency situations such as prolonged power or water outages or inclement weather.

The public will be notified of closings or changes in operating hours through a variety of means:

Radio announcements through WHIR – AM1230

Television announcements through WLEX (, WKYT (, and WTVQ (

Bookmobile Schedule During Inclement Weather

The Bookmobile follows the closing schedule of the Boyle County Schools. (If the roads are unsafe for the Boyle County School buses, they are equally unsafe for the Bookmobile.) In addition to the radio and television announcements, the Bookmobile staff will make every effort to contact patrons at the scheduled stops for the day of the inclement weather closing.
