COVID-19 Update - Library Opening July 6

Brimfield Public Library will open again to the public on July 6th.

In addition to continuing to offer curbside pickup, the library will be opening for limited in-person service on Monday, July 6th.

Beginning on July 6, the library will be open the following hours:
Mondays & Wednesdays 10:00-11:00: Elderly/High Risk Patrons
Mondays & Wednesdays 11:00-4:00 All Patrons
Fridays 10:00-4:00 All Patrons
Tuesdays & Thursdays 2:00-7:00

In-Person Service
During Phase 4, up to 20 individuals will be allowed in the library at one time. While at the library, patrons will be welcome to select their own items for checkout, use the library's computers, use their own WiFi enabled devices, make copies, and send faxes.

Based on the recommendations of the CDC and local health officials, the Library Board of Trustees has implemented policies intended to limit the transmission of COVID-19 virus and keep the library as safe as possible. One of the requirements is that staff and patrons will be required to wear a mask or covering that covers the nose and mouth while in public areas of the library. Patrons who are not able or willing to wear a mask may continue to use our curbside pickup service.

Curbside Pickup
To request items for curbside pickup, please request materials using your online account or call during the library hours listed above.  

Online Services
There are several different apps that Brimfield PLD offers that allow patrons to read, listen to music, listen to audio books, watch movies, and watch tv shows. For more information, please visit our e-resources page here: To use these services, you will need your library card number and PIN. If you haven't changed your PIN, it is normally CHANGEME or your 8 digit date of birth with no dashes. (Example: January 1, 2010 would be 01012010) 

Thank you for your understanding as we work to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
