To serve as many patrons as possible throughout the day, the maximum time available to each person in the Library is one hour per day. Computer use will be limited to 30 minutes per patron per day. Please return items in the book drop or on the designated return station inside. We are quarantining all returned items for three days.
To safely serve the public, the Library will:
- Operate at 50 percent occupancy,
- Distance tables and chairs,
- Quarantine returned items for 3 days before reshelving them,
- Install sneeze shields,
- Require staff to wear masks,
- Clean high touch surfaces.
Patrons are encouraged to download e-books and e-audiobooks on the cloudLibrary and Hoopla apps. Patrons are reminded of the Library's hold service. Patrons may place items on hold instead of browsing. To place an item on hold, patrons can log in to their online account or in the Library’s Stacks app. Additionally, patrons can call their local branch to place items on hold.
Meeting room use is not available at this time. Please check back for more information.
