In order to ensure the health and safety of our staff and patrons, Parish Public Library will be closed until further notice.

BUT--we are committed to continuing to provide reading material to our community. We're working out the plans now, and will have more information to you as soon as possible about how you will be able to continue checking out books.

In the meantime, please know that our wifi continues to be available 24/7 (accessible anywhere on the library grounds/parking lot), and e-books are always available through the Overdrive app.

Even while the physical library is closed (and while we sort out our Plan B), you can still access e-books through the Overdrive app. All you need is your library card and a mobile device (phone/tablet) or computer. You need your library card number and your pin number will be the last four digit of your phone number.

Here's the link for North Country Library System's Overdrive:

The "help" link is in the comments, if you need more information about getting started. This is a great resource for kids and adults alike to have access to the world of books without going anywhere!

We wish you and your family all the best as we weather this unprecedented time. Please be safe, keep a healthy distance, and wash your hands We look forward to seeing you again soon!
