NEW INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

While the Eudora Public Library recognizes its obligation to provide regular hours of service, the safety of the public and the library staff are of paramount importance.  Changes in hours of operation may be necessary due to emergency situations such as prolonged power or water outages or inclement weather.  The decision to close or postpone the opening of the library due to inclement weather is reached at the discretion of the Library Director.  The public will be notified of closings or changes in operating hours through a variety of means:
