The library is OPEN for inside service but it does not look the same as pre-pandemic times. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we attempt to maintain a safe environment for everyone. Curbside will continue to be an option for those who want to continue to use this service. Library programs will continue to be virtual at this time. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we strive to keep our community safe.
Don’t come to the library if you feel sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
These are the restrictions:
Please bring minimal personal items into the library and avoid setting anything down. We will clean and disinfect high touch areas each day before opening but cannot guarantee a germ free environment. The bathroom will be closed to the public.
Public computer and printing are available. One patron at a time may use a public computer and it will be cleaned after each use. It is $.25 a page for printing and copying. Exact change is appreciated. Wi-Fi is available both inside and outside the library. There is no password but you have to accept the library’s Acceptable Use Policy before being connected.
Children – While we love kids, please take these restrictions into consideration before bringing your children to the library. Every person counts toward the limit, regardless of age. Based upon the building size, there is a 6 person limit inside the library. Because of this, we request that one family member come into the building to pick up items. If you choose to bring your children, those under 10 must be an arms distance away from parents at all times. Face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required for children over age 2. Only 1 person/family at a time will be allowed in the Children’s Room. (Counts as the 5 patron total.) All of the toys and seating in the Children’s Room have been removed.
