Temporary Main Branch Closure

*July 11th Update* At this time, the Main Branch of the Nelson County Public Library will remain closed to the public due to significant water damage resulting from a broken pipe. Our team is working diligently to restore the building and ensure it is safe for public use once again. All meetings and programs, with the exception of a few off site events, being held at the Main Branch are cancelled until further notice. Information on program location changes/reschedules will be coming soon. Please follow our FB page, or check back here for updates.

In the interim, we are pleased to offer curbside services to meet the community's needs. These services will include:

  • Item check-out and return
  • Printing
  • Faxing
  • And more

Our staff is committed to providing continuous support and will assess the situation regularly to determine when we can safely reopen the library to the public.

For further updates and information, please visit our website at ncplky.org or visit us on Facebook.


07/06/24 *UPDATE* Unfortunately, a broken pipe has forced the Main Branch to remain closed through Monday, July 8th.  We will continue to monitor and reevaluate the situation within the building and provide updates on the reopening as soon as they are available. Please stay tuned for further information.


Due to unforeseen building maintenance issues, our Main Branch will be temporarily closed starting Fri., July 5th. The safety and comfort of our visitors and staff are our top priority, and this closure is necessary to ensure that necessary repairs can be carried out promptly.

We understand the inconvenience this may cause and apologize for any disruption to your library experience. During this time, we encourage you to visit our website at ncplky.org, where our full range of services and collections are available.

Please stay tuned for updates on the reopening of the Main Branch. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to resolve this matter swiftly.

Thank you for your continued support of our library.
