SIDNEY, NE — The Sidney Public Library will not be open to the public starting Wednesday, Nov. 11.

The move is in response to the Panhandle Public Health Ditrict's dial moving to into the red category, indicating a severe risk for COVID-19 spread.

Curbside service will be available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

The library will continue to provide virtual services such as video story time and toddler tales. 

Wednesday is also the day that a new directed health measure will take effect across Nebraska.
