PHASE 3 Guidelines

During Phase 3 of the Re-Opening Plan, the Library is OPEN to the public. Due to Executive Orders, the Library must follow the same guidelines as Retail Stores.

Patrons are asked to follow Social Distancing Guidelines by leaving at least 6-feet of space between yourself and those you did not come to the Library with.

Face coverings are required for those who can tolerate them.

Patrons are asked to refrain from visiting the Library if you are feeling sick. Please save your visits for a day when you are feeling better.

Please continue to return items to the Drop Box before coming inside. All items are being quarantined for 72-hours before being checked in.

Limited computers are available by appointment as well as the Study Room. Please call us at 346-3433 to book your appointment. Appointments will be for 1-hour with time between patrons for staff to clean the stations. Staff will not be able to offer up close, face-to-face computer help. If you will need extra assistance on the computer, please bring someone to help you.

Fax and Copy Services will resume. However, patrons are asked to have their documents ready before approaching the Circulation Desk area. This will help to control congestion at the desk. We only accept cash or check.

Limited seating is available inside the Library for those who need to use their laptop or other devices. However, patrons are asked to limit the time they spend in the Library during Phase 3 to avoid capacity issues in regards to Social Distancing. Our Wi-Fi remains available 24/7 in the parking lot.

The Library will not offer indoor programming at this time. The Meeting Room remains closed to public use as items are being quarantined.
