The Bellingham Public Library is closed for several days for the winter holidays, and — due to a scheduled computer system update — will be closed an additional day on January 2, 2019. In addition, our services will be limited during January 1-7, 2019, as we prepare for a new computer system.
We apologize for any inconvenience or scheduling confusion created by our system update coinciding with the holiday season, and thank you for your patience while we complete this important project. For more information about the computer system update project, visit our Joint Integrated Library System Replacement Project page.
