In cooperation with the CDC, local officials, and the Ripley County Board of Health, the Batesville Memorial Public Library Board of Trustees has made the decision to close the library to the public as of Tuesday, March 17th at 5:00 PM. Patrons can access the Library’s digital resources to listen to an audiobook, or read an ebook or magazine. 

We plan to reopen on April 7th, however we will continue to assess the situation to determine if we need to remain closed longer.
