Library Re-opening Guidelines
Libraries are following strict guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Daily operation includes spacing individual users and limiting the number of people present in the building. The library will implement these phases per recommendations made by the Governor, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Library Board of Commissioners. The plan is subject to change with statewide directives from the Governor’s Office.
Modified Phase 3
The library is open for business at 100% occupancy. Meeting rooms are available with seating limits guidelines in place.
Masks are encouraged not required. If you choose to not wear a mask, please be considerate of others around you.
Patrons are asked to return books in the book drop. (All returned materials will be quarantined for 1 day before being placed back into circulation.)
We offer a special “drive-up” service for elderly, high-risk, or physically challenged patrons daily.
We will continue to be “fine-free” in 2021.
We look forward to seeing you at your library!
