Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in Oakland County and surrounding areas, FCL is proactively prioritizing the health and safety of our staff and patrons by temporarily closing in-person library service to help mitigate the spread of the virus in our community. The Farmington Community Library has moved back to Phase 2 of our Reopening Plan. Curbside pickup, phone and electronic reference, and outdoor drop boxes will be available while we temporarily close in-person library services. Our hours are: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. The Library will be closed Thursday, November 25 for Thanksgiving. Read more…
