The Ellington Farman library takes the health of our staff, volunteers, guests, and community as top priority. As a preventative measure in light of recent developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Library will be closed to the public effective immediately until further notice. All public programs and events are also canceled or postponed until further notice. While this was not a decision made lightly, the safety of our community comes first coupled with the guidelines and recommendations provided by health officials. Please note: if you absolutely need an item, especially for your child’s education, call 287-2945 to leave a specific message.You may also email me at I will check all messages at 1pm. I’ll gather items you need, check them out to you, call you  and you may pick them up at the library door between 3-6pm Monday thru Thursday. We will be extending due dates of all currently checked out items to April 20 and forgiving overdue fines during this period.
