Wilberg Memorial Public Library of Osceola is excited to announce that starting Monday, Jan. 3, 2022 they will be operating under new and expanded hours. The Library will now be open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and will also be open Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. 

Library Director, Shelby Friendshuh, says, “We are very excited to expand our open hours and give our hours and give our patrons more time to browse, hold meetings, play and more!”

However, explained Friendshuh, “In order to expand library hours we had to make the difficult decision to close the drive-thru due to staffing and scheduling needs. “Though visitors may still continue to the drive-thru drop box.”

Also starting Jan. 3, 2022 all holds must be picked up in the Library. If you or a family member are concerned about entering the Library space due to local Covid-19 conditions, please call the Library for support in getting your holds.
