COVID-19 Preparedness

Farmington Community Library Response to COVID-19

Keeping You Safe is Our Priority

Due to ongoing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus and to help mitigate the spread, the Farmington Community Library will remain closed until further notice.

For those who have checked out any item(s), we encourage you to please keep all those Library items with you until we reopen. Overdue fines will be waived during this time. Book drops will be closed as we will not be accepting returns. Please do not leave Library items at Farmington Community Library buildings or return them to other libraries. You are responsible for lost or damaged materials.

We encourage you to take advantage of our many digital offerings that are just a click away! Your FCL Library Card gives you access to a multitude of e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines and streaming content, as well as research and informational databases. Visit and for these materials, and contact the Library for assistance.

Please know that we are taking this pandemic seriously and have made this decision in the best interest of our patrons and staff. We wish you and your loved ones continued health and safety!

Warmest regards,

Riti Grover

Mental Health Warmline

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has a statewide mental health hotline for Michigan residents.

The hotline, or as the state calls it “warmline” will connect individuals with certified peer support specialists who have lived experiences of behavioral health issues, trauma or personal crises, and are trained to support and empower the callers.

The warmline will operate seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. at 888-PEER-753 (888-733-7753).
