COVID-19 Updates

Masks Required for library visits

Masks are now required.

When visiting the library, you must wear a mask. While the library staff is still taking precautions to keeping you safe, wearing a mask will help keep other patrons, staff, and yourself safe.

For more information about how to properly wear a mask, please visit the CDC's guidelines.

What is the library doing for you?

  • Staff members are regularly cleaning computers stations, tables, and the front desk area.
  • Library materials are being quarantined for 3 days.
    • This means that an item that you just returned will be in isolation for 3 days before it is checked in. The item will remain on your account until those 3 days are up. After the 3 days, the item will be checked in and you will not get a late fine for those 3 days. 
    • This also means that an item coming from another library is also in isolation for 3 days before you will be notified. items that you have on hold will take longer to become available due to this process. 
  • The library is open at a 25% capacity. Only 60 people are allowed in the building at one time.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
