CityofAllen.org is the primary source of closure and emergency information for the City of Allen including Allen Public Library. Citizens can also enroll in Hyper-Reach Emergency Notifications to get rapid alerts about urgent situations with a telephone call, text, and/or email message. During emergencies, the primary social media channel used to share information is the City of Allen Facebook page. Department web pages and social media channels may not have the most current information.
If the Library facility closes due to inclement weather, curbside pickup will be temporarily suspended, programs will be canceled, and no materials will be due until the facility reopens.
The Digital Library is always open! Get started with cloudLibrary to access eBooks and eAudiobooks, cloudLibrary NewsStand for digital magazines, Comics Plus by Library Pass for digital comics and graphic novels, and TumbleBooks Library for young readers.
