***NOTE: The Mohave County Library District has reopened library facilities to the public. Due to the pandemic, a number of changes have been made for the health and safety of library customers and staff. A trip to the library will temporarily be different than in the past, but the library is still able to connect customers with information and materials. Customers can still pick up holds, use computers, and obtain new materials for check out.
The most significant change for many is that there is no physical browsing of the collection. Instead, staff will locate and retrieve materials for customers. The book stacks are currently closed to the public. Customers are encouraged to browse the online catalog at https://mcld.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default to place holds or may call the library to have a hold placed for them. The library staff is always eager to assist with finding the specific items a customer is seeking.
ALSO: The Recorder’s Offices as well as the Assessor’s Offices have reopened in Kingman, Lake Havasu City and Bullhead City. All offices have taken necessary precautions and will continue to follow guidelines to ensure our customers and staff remain healthy and safe.
