Safety Measures:

For your safety and ours, we are…

  • Limiting in-person services to curbside and Pick-up windows and interior computer use and browsing at all locations.
  • Requiring staff to wear face masks or cloth coverings.
  • Requiring temperature checks and face masks or cloth coverings for customers using indoor services.
  • Regularly fogging and cleaning our facilities and hard surfaces including tabletops, door handles, etc. based on CDC recommendations.
  • Isolating all returned materials for a minimum of 24 hours prior to recirculating them into the collection.
  • Using plexiglass at customer service locations. 

We also ask that you…

  • Wash your hands regularly and/or use hand sanitizer prior to your visit. 
  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell. 
  • Stay in your vehicle during drive thru or curbside pick up so that we can continue to practice social distancing. 
  • Call ahead if you need reasonable accommodations or one-on-one assistance.
  • Return items to our exterior and interior book drops to limit handling.

We will be sure to keep customers informed of any updates. Please continue to check as well as our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts for the latest library news; trusted resources; and digital entertainment and educational recommendations.
