Library Closed March 18-22.

We are closed March 18 to March 22 for deep cleaning. We will reopen on Monday, March 23, for regular hours. The system has been set to show we are closed so no overdues will accrue over the weekend. The Director will be monitoring email and phone messages during the closed period. Email is: director@meadelibrary.info or phone 620-873-2522 and leave a message. The book drops may be used over the weekend. An update will be posted on Monday, or sooner, if officials require us to close indefinitely. Stay safe and healthy as we all figure this issue out.
