January Service & Program Update

Due to rising COVID-19 case numbers in Washtenaw County and in response to recommendations from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC, Chelsea District Library is adjusting our plans for January programming. Where possible, programs will be moved to a virtual format. Otherwise, programs are currently being rescheduled. Look for updates on the CDL event calendar, eNewsletters, and website.

CDL is still operating under our normal business hours and is open for browsing, material checkout, computer use, and other library services. We ask our patrons to please wear masks when visiting the library and appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate the ongoing changes to health and safety recommendations.

Library Hours:
Monday–Thursday: 9am–8pm
Friday: 10am–6pm
Saturdays: 10am–3pm
Sunday: 1–5pm
