The Coloma Public Library remains open for our community. A variety of services continue to be available including materials checkouts, movie rentals, computers, printing, faxing, quiet study areas, and more.

For safety of patrons as well as staff, we will provide service in a manner that reduces close contact with others. Face-masks are required for visitors that can medically tolerate them. Social distancing from others not in the same group is also required. We will continue to offer curbside services throughout the week to accommodate patrons who prefer it.

Our public service hours are Monday through Friday 10am-6pm.
Saturdays will remain Curbside only from 10am-2pm.
