Dang, the library’s closed?! Now what?

Yes, it’s true. Due to pandemic concerns in the Chippewa Valley, library leadership decided to close the doors for a few weeks. You may be asking, “Now what?”

You may not realize it, but the library offers numerous online resources, including e-books, e-audiobooks, streaming music, magazines, and even movies – all free with your Eau Claire library card! Don’t have an Eau Claire library card? Get digital access now with an e-card.
