It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Trimble Library will no longer be able to provide curbside services starting Thursday March 26th at 6:00 p.m. due to the current public health crisis. The library will re-open when the CDC and state government officials determine it is safe to resume in-person services.
While the library is closed, staff will answering the phone and emails Monday through Friday from 9-5 to help people sign up for cards to use digital services. Staff will also be planning programs and services, maintaining social media, completing online trainings and cleaning up catalog records. Great efforts are also being made to ensure items that are returned to the library are clean and safe for customers to handle and that the library is cleaned thoroughly once the library is open.
Our staff misses our customers and are anxious to get back to serving our community! In the meantime, we are praying for our community to be healthy and work together during this time. Please comply with the Healthy At Home initiative Governor Beshear is recommending. We want to continue to our serve our community during this time. Please let us know if we can help in anyway.

Will staff be able to make copies and do faxes?
Unfortunately the library is unable to continue this service. Many businesses will accept scanned documents sent to an email for business purposes. There are many free APPS available for cells phones that will allow you to scan documents to a PDF and then email them to a business. GENIUS SCAN is an example of an APP that has scanning and emailing capabilities.
