Physically Closed but Digitally Open
The library building is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we have many online services available.
Librarians are scheduling online programs on a variety of topics for all ages. Scroll down to see our upcoming programs. Missed some? Check out our YouTube page.
Put some spring in your step and get reading! We’re offering reading clubs for all ages online via READsquared. Enjoy mini-games, challenges, prizes and more.
If you don’t have an LPL card, you can sign up online for a temporary card that gives access to many countywide library products. If you live in our district, we will do our best to provide you with a full-access Longwood Public Library card, so you can use all our digital services.
Students need our homework help service now, more than ever. Live tutors are available from 1 pm to 11 pm every day to help students. Other resources are always available too.
The library offers several options to download or stream eBooks, movies, music, magazines and more. All you need is a library card.
From genealogy to languages to software skills, our online learning services have you covered. Learn something new today!
Museums are closed and our museum passes are currently unavailable. Our librarians have put together a list of the museums now offering virtual tours.
Especially for Kids and Teens
While the Children's and Teen Services Departments certainly miss seeing our library friends in person during this time of social distancing, there are still a lot of things that we can do together - apart! We'll be adding new events, programs and activities to this blog every week, and there will be something for everyone.
Currently Checked Out
During this time, patrons may keep their library materials at home without late fines. There is no need to return items during the building closure. If you return items to the book drop when the library is closed they will remain on your library account until staff return to the building after the closure and check the items in.
COVID-19 Information & Resources
Our reference librarians compiled COVID-19 Information & Resources to help you navigate through the pandemic and our children's librarians compiled resources to help anxious kids during the pandemic. Stay safe!
