What to expect when visiting the library
For the safety of staff and public alike, masks will be required to enter the building
Patrons must observe physical distancing, maintaining a minimum of 6 feet distance between individuals when possible. Only one person at a time should be in each book aisle.
Following state guidelines, we have removed a LOT of furniture. It’s all stored in the auditorium, and we hope to be able to put it back in place soon.
The children’s area will look different: no train table, no doll house, no toys. Petunia Guinea Pig and the birds are still on holiday.
Plexiglas shields have been installed at the circulation desk.
COMPUTERS & PRINTING: Some public computers have been removed, to ensure safe distances. Public computer use will be limited to 1 hour per person per day. No reservations. As with mobile printing, the first 10 pages will be free when printing from a public computer. Mobile Printing is also available.
Staff assistance may be limited due to social distancing guidelines.
RETURNS: Most items must be returned in the outside book return to limit staff contact. Only large items such as tools, story kits, cake pans, or electronic items may be returned inside the building. Returns are quarantined for a minimum of 4 days.
