Inclement Weather Policy


The Augusta County Library will be closed when Augusta County offices are closed.

If weather or emergency conditions develop on Saturdays or after 5:00 p.m. weekdays, the library director or other authorized personnel, in consultation with the County Administrator, will have the authority to close the library. The Augusta County Emergency Operation Center (EOC) 245-5501 and selected local radio and television stations will be notified of any unscheduled closings and the ACL website and telephone answering system will be updated accordingly.

If Augusta County Schools are closed but the County Offices (including the Libraries) are open, storytimes and library programs will be held at the discretion of the Library Director. Cancelled programs may not be rescheduled. Cancellations will be posted on the library website, Facebook page, and any future social media outlets.
