Lewis County Public Library and Archives is committed to providing library services throughout the Lewis County community, not just in the library and archives building. Outreach services are brought directly to residents in order to reduce gaps in access and increase community connections.
Outreach takes a variety of forms and the library and archives works closely with partners to find the right fit for the community. Outreach services consist of the following:
Library programs are taken directly to daycares, schools, businesses, senior facilities, and community gathering places. Offsite programming includes computer classes, history presentations, storytimes, and other activities. Programs are offered in-person and virtually.
Books and other resources are delivered on a weekly or monthly basis to senior care centers, childcare facilities, and other organizations. Library staff work with sites to choose titles that fit their needs. The library and archives also offers a mobile computer lab that can be scheduled for various community groups and events.
Note: Some services may be limited or unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
