In an effort to continue to provide some of the events and programming that our community loves so much, we will begin to offer some of our programs virtually beginning the week of March 23, 2020. We will continue to update this post with links as they are created.

In an effort to decrease risk among customers and staff during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all Missouri River Regional Library buildings and outreach services (including the bookmobile) will be closed after 9:00pm on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice.

Make plans to attend one (or all!) of our programming, and be sure to check out your favorite Halloween-inspired film or book!
