Storytimes Temporarily Suspended

After careful consideration, the City of Peoria has suspended all programs, in compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance about large gatherings and the benefits of social distancing in minimizing community spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

All city classes and programs at the Peoria Main and Sunrise Mountain Libraries are suspended. The City of Peoria will continue to follow all health and safety protocols currently in place as well as maintain focus on cleaning high traffic, commonly handled surfaces at public facilities. As this situation progresses, the city will continue to evaluate upcoming events, programs and policies and will share the information with the public.
