KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Mid-Continent Public Library branch in Smithville will temporarily close due to a COVID-19 exposure, the library announced Thursday.
The library was closed immediately after an employee tested positive on Thursday. The library is working to notify any customers who were there between Nov. 14-15.
All library staff who may have been exposed will be screened and monitored before they return to work.
The book drop will remain open and hold times will be extended so materials are available when the branch reopens.
The library said it's working with the Clay County Health Department to determine additional steps.
It did not say when the branch would reopen.
