Your Health and Safety Is Our Priority
Based on the recommendations issued by the State of California and Placer County's Public Health officer related to aggressive social distancing to help curtail further spread of COVID-19 in our community, the Lincoln Public Library closed in March 2020.We reopened under a "Grab and Go" model on October 12th, 2020. Please see below for more information. On June 15th, we opened additional seating and modified our mask guidance to meet that of the California Department of Public Heath.
