Cedar City Library will be closed as of Wednesday, March 18th, 2020.  At this time, we are unable to waive fines.  If you need to return books, please drop them off at our book drop on the North side of the building.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  You can also renew items by calling us at 435-586-6661 or emailing us at

Exercising an abundance of caution and in conformity with the suggestions of government leaders and many in the medical community, the Cedar City Library will experience a temporary closure effective after the end of business sanitizing, painting, and general building maintenance. Certain enhancements to our catalog and the way material is located will be implemented. Capitalizing on a period of low attendance as well as a time that calls for cautious and prudent behavior ensures that this closure will impact the fewest number of patrons. Please take advantage of our eBook and eAudio resources, databases, and other online resources. We will make daily updates to social media. Thank you for your patronage.

Steve Decker, Library Director.
