Library Director Anne Tews said the Bloomfield Public Library will be closed to walk-in patrons through Sept. 21, but will be providing curbside service during day time hours.

The library is also adding extended curbside service from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Tews said new books are being ordered including fiction and non-fiction for adults, young adults, and kids.

“We’ve been on a particular hunt for books on home-schooling and Montessori instruction for parents to help their kids,” Tews said. “A cool-looking, young-adult book is ‘True or False: A CIA Analyst’s Guide to Spotting Fake News’ by Cindy Otis.”

“One of our new kids’ books is ‘She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History’ by Chelsea Clinton.”

Tews invites the public to reach out and request materials by going online to, call 641-664-2209, or email
