Closure of American Spaces
March 20, 2020

Out of an abundance of caution the American Centers in Abuja and Lagos as well as the other American Spaces throughout Nigeria will be temporarily closed to the public beginning Monday, March 23, 2020.  During this period, the public will not be able to access the library and all scheduled programs will be cancelled.

In order to continue to provide you certain popular programs and professional development opportunities, we will explore hosting some programs online.

The health of our visitors is our top priority. These temporary closures are precautionary and are not in response to any known or suspected coronavirus exposure at any of our facilities.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back to all of the American Spaces as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please follow all of the prescribed safety measures (frequent handwashing and social distancing) and stay healthy!
