Our Mission

Skidompha Library supports and enriches our community by fostering literacy, providing ready access to information resources, encouraging lifelong learning, and promoting cultural and social interactions.

Skidompha is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Severe Weather Closings Policy

When weather conditions affect the safety of roads, the Director will determine whether to close the Library.  Notice of closings will be posted on the Library’s answering machine, website, and on social media.

Power Outages Policy

The Director will determine whether to close the Library after two hours without power, as temperature and air quality within the facility may be compromised.
