The Elgin Public Library serves Elgin and the immediate area in Bastrop, Travis, Lee and Williamson counties. During COVID-19, the library has transitioned programming to virtual platforms and continued to provide access to the library collection following COVID-19 protocols.
“I am excited to be a part of the Elgin Public Library and to continue the beloved services of the Library as well as discover new ways we can best serve the public of Elgin. I can't wait to learn and grow with the Elgin community!” said Labinger.
The Library is providing sidewalk deliveries Tuesday through Saturday. Items can be reserved through the online catalogue. Printing services are available by emailing documents to email@example.com, and free WIFI is available to the public with the password posted on the exterior of the building.
