All five branches of the Citrus County Library System are open to the public for access to primary services including shelf-browsing and reading, check-out of materials, reference and information services, and computer and Wi-Fi use.

Additionally, some technology classes and other select library programs are currently being offered with advanced registration. Visit the Calendars link on or call your local branch to register.

During the current phase, libraries are operating with adjusted hours at half-capacity:

  • All branches will be open Monday through Wednesday from 10:00am until 6:00pm and Thursday and Friday from 10:00am until 5:00pm.
  • The Central Ridge (Beverly Hills), Lakes Region (Inverness), and Homosassa branches will be open on Saturday from 10:00am until 2:00pm.
  • Coastal Region (Crystal River) and Floral City branches remain closed on Saturdays.

All branches continue to offer a curbside pick-up service to accommodate special needs and at-risk populations only. This limited service is available by calling in advance and arranging pick-up of pre-requested materials on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10:00am -12:00pm.

All branches are observing standard safety guidelines including: limiting occupancy to half-capacity, practicing proper social distancing by staying six feet apart, and by wearing a mask or face covering whenever possible. Additionally, all service points have been outfitted with plexiglass sneeze guards, staff clean and disinfect all frequently used surfaces and equipment regularly throughout the day, and all returned materials are cleaned and quarantined for a minimum of 24 hours before being re-circulated.

Library staff, in coordination with County officials, continue to evaluate conditions for resuming more services while ensuring the safest environment possible for staff and customers.
