July 20, 2020

We have been so excited to welcome you back into the building on a limited basis for the last two weeks, and on Monday July 20th, we will be providing greater access to the first floor of the library building.  Patrons will be able to browse and borrow from the adult, teen, audiobook, and movie collections. Tables with children’s materials will be available for browsing on the first floor and staff will pull requested items from the second floor collections. Our staff has put together Take-n-Make crafts to go that can be requested at the Ask Desk, while supplies last. 

Access to public computers is not yet available, but if you need to print a document, assistance is available at the Ask Desk. Photocopying and scanning services will be available, with access to the copy room restricted to two people at a time.  If you need a place to sit and study, chairs are available outside in the Reading Garden and there are picnic tables on the back lawn.   

All patrons must wear a mask (that covers their mouth and nose) upon entry to the Library, and the mask must remain in place at all times during your visit.  Patrons and staff are also asked to keep a six-foot distance form one another whenever possible.   

As we move through each stage of our reopening, you will gradually gain more access to the Library and see an increase in our services. We look forward to returning to full-service and appreciate your help and patience as we all navigate these new safety protocols.
