COVID-19 Response

Hedberg Public Library will be CLOSED until further notice.

The health and safety of our patrons and employees is a priority to the City of Janesville and Hedberg Public Library (HPL). We are working to stay on top of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to follow the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control, WI Department of Health Services, Rock County Health Department and the City of Janesville.

Our current plan is to:
1) Prioritize the safety and health of our staff and patrons.
2) Continue serving your library needs as the situation allows.
3) Plan ahead for changing circumstances.


Stay home if you are sick. Wash your hands. Cough into your elbow.
