Aurora Memorial & Garrettsville Branches Reduced Hours- Beginning July 27

Portage County District Library (PCDL) is currently in final stages of preparing to reopen for public browsing.  Due to budgetary shortfalls resulting from the economic effects of COVID-19, two of the library's branch locations will have a small reduction in operating hours.  This change in operating hours will take place on Monday, July 27 and will be reflected in times open for contactless pick-up of holds, as well as hours when the buildings become open to the public.

The Aurora Memorial and Garrettsville branches' reduced hours will be Mondays and Tuesdays from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm; Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm; Saturdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm; and closed on Thursdays and Sundays. There will be no changes to library service hours for the three remaining branches- Pierce Streetsboro, Randolph, and Windham.

PCDL currently relies entirely on the state of Ohio's Public Library Fund for our financial support.  Because of this, a decrease in the statewide sales and income tax collections has a greater impact on our budget than it does for other libraries in our area, all of which also receive funding from local property taxes.
