Columbia Public Library to close for five days over staffing concerns

The Columbia Public Library and its curbside pickup services will be closed Saturday through Wednesday because of COVID-19-related staffing shortages.

The Friends of the Library book sales, which usually occur Wednesdays and Saturdays, will begin again Jan. 29.

Margaret Conroy, executive director of the library, said the library will reopen Thursday morning.

The Callaway County Public Library in Fulton, the Holts Summit Public Library and the Southern Boone County Public Library in Ashland will remain open with regular hours, according to the Daniel Boone Regional Library website.

The Columbia Missourian is a community news organization managed by professional editors and staffed by Missouri School of Journalism students who do the reporting, design, copy editing, information graphics, photography and multimedia.
