Reardan Memorial Library serves as a public information provider for our community, using traditional and innovative technology to encourage curiosity, free inquiry and lifelong learning in a friendly environment.

Update

We will be able to reopen when Lincoln County gets permission to enter Phase III of the reopening process! There will be restrictions in place to continue to protect you. As the guidelines are updated for the opening, I will post them. Please continue to follow the guidelines for everyone's health!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the governor's Stay Home, Stay Safe order, we are currently

closed until further notice. 

Please continue to contact us at 509-994-9997, or email me at library@townofreardan.com.

Our website offers a variety of resources such as ebooks, e-audiobooks, and a variety of learning opportunities all available with your library card number and PIN. 

During this time, you may place items on hold and arrange to pick them up.

Access the catalog: If this is your first time on the catalog, your account number is firstname.lastname. Your pin is Last name.

Search for items that you want.

Place them on hold.

I will check weekly on the holds and check them out to you.

I will then call you and we will arrange a time for you to pick them up. Please make sure your phone number is accurate!

Stay Healthy! I look forward to seeing you soon! 

Suzanne Schulz, librarian
