PLEASE NOTE (as of 5/19/2020):

***All of our library locations are currently closed to the public and we are not checking out physical materials . Staff are working hard to move as many of our resources online as possible.

***We have left the WIFI on at the Elko County Library (located at 720 Court Street), which does reach the street, to offer internet to those who may need it. You will not need a password to login but you must agree to the Frontier terms of service to access the hotspot. Please remember to practice social distancing measures while using this service. We have been having technical difficulties outside of our control and apologize if you are unable to connect to our network.

***The library book drops have been reopened, and if patrons would like to return items, you are able to do so. We will not be charging overdue fines at this time. If you have difficulty using our online services due to overdue items, please let us know and we will fix the issue on your card.
