Because of the need to socially distance, occupancy of the library will be limited to 52 patrons, with no more than 24 in the youth department. We will not accept any returns in person and we ask that any returns be placed in one of the drop boxes outside. All items will be placed in quarantine for up to four days. Bins will be available inside the library for any materials that are handled during browsing but decided against checking out, so that they may be placed into quarantine.
There will be 7 computers available for use, spread throughout the upstairs area. There will be no computers in the youth department. We ask to be informed of which computers are in use so that they can be properly sanitized.
All minors (under 18) must have adult supervision.
Hand sanitizing stations are available near the restrooms and by the front entrance.
One public restroom on the lower level will be open. It is accessible and has a changing table.The water fountains are not available.
Bar code readers have been placed where patrons can scan their library cards and any materials they wish to check out from a safe distance.
As always, the staff will be available to assist you to the best of our abilities. See you soon.
