Due to Executive Order 2020-161, which limits indoor gatherings to 10 people or less, the Coloma Public Library will return to Curbside Service effective Friday, July 31st. We will also take 30-minute appointments for patrons who need to briefly use a computer, use faxing or printing services, or check out materials. We will make appointments one day at a time.

The hours for Curbside and By-Appointment Service will be Monday through Friday 10am-6pm. Saturdays will remain Curbside only from 10am-2pm.
