[ARCHIVED] City Closures & Cancellations-Library


Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to practice social distancing and avoid introducing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to our susceptible populations.

The Schertz Public Library will be closed Monday, March 16 through Tuesday, April 14th. The city continues to monitor the situation, but at this time we will open back up to the public and resume normal business hours Wednesday, April 15th.

At this time, the Library is closed to the public. However, we can still help!

  • Need a library card?
    • Register online to get a digital library card. You’ll be able to access all our digital resources in no time! 
  • Need to return a physical item?
    • Our drive-up item return is available 24/7, and is located on the side of our building facing Elbel Rd.
    • We will also not be charging any late fines for materials due in the time period we are currently closed.
  • Need a tax form? 
  • Wanted to pick up an item you have on hold?
    • We will be offering curbside holds pickup for existing library cardholders between 11 AM-1 PM and 4-6 PM beginning Tuesday, March 17th- Friday March 20th.  If you have an active hold or several, library staff will be reaching out via telephone to coordinate which pick-up time works for you. Typically holds are active within 24 hours of the hold being placed. Didn’t make it over for your holds? Don’t worry, we will keep them on the shelves until we resume normal operations, at which point you will have a week to make it over.
  • Need a good book to read or movie to watch?
  • Wanted to browse our new physical items?
  • Needed to use our space to congregate with a group?
