Winter Weather

If the weather should take a turn for the worst, the Tolono Public Library may choose to close for the safety of our patrons and our staff. If the decision is made to close the library, we will post closings online and will notify local radio and tv media. Please check the library’s website & Facebook page, or call the library before venturing out.

Should the Library be closed due to weather, all programs, events, and activities that were scheduled for that day will be cancelled.
