Re-opening: What to Expect
As you know, our library has been closed since mid-March, and we have missed you all so much! Over the last few months, our staff has worked hard to continue providing exceptional service in new ways. Our curbside pickup services began on May 1st and have been running smoothly.
We are looking forward to Stage 3 of our re-opening plan, which includes opening the library doors for our patrons (that’s YOU!) for limited services. You may be wondering what we mean by “limited services,” and we don’t blame you! Re-opening looks different for each organization and business, and the library is no exception. So, in this week’s blog post, I will try to clarify what library services will look like from June 1 to 14.
For Stage 3, the number of people in the library at any given time will be limited to 50 or less. In order to accomplish this, we have to limit our services and will be encouraging our users to conduct their business in the library quickly so that others may have access as well.
While our computers will be available for public use, there will be a few changes. The number of computers available will drop so that we can comply with social distancing guidelines (6 feet apart). And because we know many of you will need to use our computer services, we will be asking users to register ahead of time and limit their computer use to 1 hour per day. Computers in the children’s room will not be available.
