Guidelines for Public Library Usage

  • Limit two patrons at a time in library. Follow social distancing guidelines.
  • Public restrooms are not available.
  • Use hand sanitizer provided at library door before and after entering the library.
  • Return all books to outside book return.
  • All returned books will be quarantined before being returned to the shelves.
  • Curbside service still available.
    Guidelines will be reviewed monthly and will change as needed.

What is Curbside Service?

Curbside service is for anyone who does not want to go into the library to checkout their books. Instead, call the library during open hours or email or Facebook message ahead of time. Tell staff what you would like to check out or what kind of books you prefer. Staff will select and checkout the items for you and will put books/movies in a bag to be placed by outside door at the agreed upon time. You drive up and get out of vehicle and pick up your bag with your name on it. There is no contact with staff this way. There is very little risk with handling a plastic bag and you can quarantine the books for three days if you are concerned.
