Welcome to the Breese Public Library

WE ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO CONTACT EXPOSURE TO COVID. NO ITEMS CAN BE SHARED OR RETURNED AT THIS TIME.

It is important to us to stay honest with our patrons as we navigate this unusual time.
We find it to be our upmost priority to keep our building and materials safe. When we decide to reopen, this note will be edited.
