Library services

Pama O’Toole of Port Hadlock was in one of her favorite places as she browsed the books at the Jefferson County Library on Friday.

The library has been open for in-person book checkout and other rentals when the county is in the state’s low- and moderate-risk categories. The library also offers curbside pick and will continue to do so if it is required to close in-person visits due to rising case numbers of COVID-19.

The Port Townsend Public Library hopes to open Tuesday with limited hours for checkout, depending on the county staying in the moderate-risk category.
