Westlake Porter Public Library announces services changes due to county order
Effective Thursday, Nov. 19, Westlake Porter Public Library will be offering drive-up window services, telephone services, online programs and limited computer access ONLY. The physical library will be closed for browsing, but open for limited computer access by appointment only. The new, expanded WiFi can be accessed in the parking lot for those who need the Internet.
“The health and safety of our patrons and staff are of the upmost importance,” said Library Director Andrew Mangels. “This difficult decision to reduce services was made in response to the rising COVID-19 cases locally as well as in response to the Cuyahoga County stay-at-home advisory.”
Customers may continue to request materials online by visiting westlakelibrary.org or by calling the library at 440-871-2600. Materials already on hold will be available for pick-up through the drive-up window during regular open hours. Limited computer access appointments can be requested by calling the library at 440-871-2600, ext. 2.
NOTE: Cuyahoga County Public Library also announced the closing of their branches, including the Bay Village branch, to in-person services. Materials on hold may be picked up via drive-though window or curbside service.
