Grab and Go Library Services

Grab and Go Library Services allow patrons to safely browse and use the computer inside the library. Patrons are encouraged to wear a mask and maintain social distancing at 6 feet while inside the library. 

All children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The Meeting and Study Rooms will be closed until further notice. Computer use is limited to 1 hour per person, per day. If you are working on an essential task that requires more than one hour, check in with library staff before you begin your session to see if an extension is possible.

Please do not enter the library if you are sick. All borrowed library materials will be quarantined, which means they will remain on your card during that time. Patrons will not be charged overdue fines.

Virtual Library programming is available through the Bay County Public Library Facebook page or the Northwest Regional Library System Florida YouTube channel.
