The library is taking several measures to protect the health and safety of its staff and patrons. This is our highest priority. These measures include:

  • Implementing a phased approach to library reopening by increasing services at different phases.
  • Implementing six feet social distancing protocols.
  • Adding directional arrows throughout the building.
  • Installing Plexiglass shields at different service points throughout the library.
  • Increasing cleaning procedures and frequency of these by library staff and custodians.
  • Reducing library hours to allow sufficient time for enhanced cleaning.
  • Providing hand-sanitizers at different points throughout the building.
  • Removing seating and tables and repositioning public computer stations.
  • Prohibiting use of the drinking fountains in compliance with state guidelines. Refilling personal water bottles is permitted.

  • Stay home if you have any symptoms of any illness.
  • Sanitize and wash your hands frequently. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building and our bathrooms are open for patrons to use.
  • Maintain a distance of at least six feet from staff and other patrons.
  • Keep your visit to the library short to allow other patrons to take advantage of library services.
  • Follow the instructions of library staff and comply with our Patron Rules of Conduct
