The health and safety of our patrons and staff are our top priority. As a safety precaution for our staff and for our patrons amid concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, the Harris-Elmore Public Library and its Genoa Branch will be closed March 17th-April 15th. Additionally all programs, meetings, and outreach will be cancelled beginning March 15th.


All library item due dates have been extended until we open back up to the public.  The book drops are locked, so please keep all materials until we are open. We are now FINE FREE, so you will not be charged.


You may also access any of our online collections 24/7 at

Free wi-fi is accessible from the Elmore Library parking lot, Ory Park parking lot or Genoa Library parking lot.

This was a decision that was not made lightly and we are very sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause.
