The Library is reopening for in-person service on July 9th!

 
 
In the interest of serving our patrons in person as soon as possible, the Library will reopen its doors on July 9th. To uphold the highest service, health, and safety standards, our offerings will be phased in over the summer.
 
The following policies have been approved by our Board of Trustees:
 
  • Face coverings that completely cover the mouth and nose are required while in the Library. Masks, bandanas or scarves are acceptable. Hands, shirts, or other clothing are not acceptable face coverings.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet from other patrons and staff at all times.
  • No one under age 14 may enter the Library without a parent, guardian or other responsible adult who will supervise their behavior while in the Library.
  • Due to an executive order, no more than 25% of the maximum capacity of the building are allowed in the Library at one time. That number will be posted and will need to be enforced.
  • No individual may remain inside the Library building for more than one hour.
  • Outside furniture may not be brought into the Library.
 
As part of our phased-in approach, upholstered seating will not initially be available to the public. Copiers, PCs, and Quiet Rooms will be available sometime after July 24th (subject to Board approval). When public computers open, sessions will be limited to 30 minutes.
 
Library Hours through the summer will be:
 
Monday - Thursday 10 AM - 9 PM
Friday 10 AM - 5 PM
Saturday 10 AM - 1 PM
*Closed Sunday
 
The Library is choosing to open at this time because we have confidence that our patrons will be able to follow these policies, and we are extremely enthusiastic about providing you access to our collection. We miss you and are looking forward to seeing you all. Individuals unwilling or unable to follow these policies inside our building will be offered a range of options such as 'grab and go' service to access our offerings without having to enter the building. We thank you for your patience during this time.
