Decatur Public Library 

We are open! Our current hours are Monday/Wednesday/Friday 10 am to 2 pm and Tuesday & Thursday 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

During this pandemic, we appreciate your patience as we follow protocols to keep everyone—our community members and our staff—safe. We ask that you wear a mask at all times while you are in the library; if you do not have one, we have disposable masks available. We have reopened on a limited basis, and are ensuring that we follow all recommended health practices, including social distancing, disinfecting highly-trafficked areas, and wearing PPE.  Thank you for your support of Decatur Public Library.
