Emergency Closings

OFL maintains a regular schedule of hours open to the public.  It may become necessary to close the library, shorten hours or cancel programs when emergency conditions pose a safety hazard to the public and staff or prevent basic library functions. The decision to close the library or cancel scheduled programs is based upon one or more of the following:

  1. Severe weather and/or road conditions that cause hazardous traveling, such as significant snow or ice accumulation, extreme (subzero) temperatures, or blizzard conditions.  In the event that Westhill Schools are closed, OFL will open at noon, unless the weather is so severe that the Library Director decides to keep the library closed for the entire day.
  2. Failure of vital building services, extended power failure, condition of the building or its equipment.
  3. General health/safety emergency or other circumstances in which other governmental entities are closing.

The Library Director shall make the decision to close. If the Library Director is not available, the Assistant Director will decide.

Emergency closings are announced in as many ways as possible given the  circumstances  of  the  emergency  and  may  include  the  library  website,  library  answering machine, signs on doors, announcements on social media and on the following news outlets:
