Downtown Huntington Library Closed Due to COVID

Updated 3 weeks ago

Due to an employee testing positive for coronavirus, the Cabell County Public Library announced the Main branch will be closed until next week. 

In a press release issued Thursday, CCPL Director Judy Rule said the Huntington branch is closed through Tuesday, Nov. 3 until the building can be sanitized, and employees tested following a positive COVID-19 test by an employee.  Staff who worked in close proximity to the employee who tested positive are currently under quarantine and will remain so for at least 14 days. 

All Main library staff will be required to be tested and given a negative result before returning to work, Rule said.  They will also be retesting to assure that have not been infected.

In the meantime, the the drive-up window remains available and telephones will be answered. Also, all other branch libraries will remain open.

Books and materials that are currently checked out can be returned at the drop box or to branch libraries. 

Patrons are urged  use CCPL’s webpage, www.cabell.lib.wv.us, for continued online services for reading and listening material.
