With the concern of the coronavirus (covid-19) the Hemet Public Library is CLOSED, all public events, classes, and programs ARE CANCELLED. It is our dedication to the health and welfare of our patrons that this becomes necessary.
Due dates for borrowed library materials have been extended until the library reopens. Patrons may contact the library Monday-Saturday, 9 am - 5 pm for information, services, and resources during the closure. The Library’s 24/7 Kiosk is still available for use!
