Rules

  • It is important to note that reopening does not mean a complete return to normal operations. Things will look and feel a little different and we appreciate your patience and cooperation as we again open our doors safely and responsibly.
  • Browsing sessions are available for 30 minutes at a time. To make your appointment, use the reservation system below.
  • Visits are limited to one appointment per week per individual or household/family group. This helps us all social distance and comply with our capacity limit. A family group is up to four people who all live together in the same household. Children under 10 must be accompanied at all times by a parent or caregiver 16 and older.
  • If you arrive late to your appointment, you will not be able to stay late. We need to stick closely to the start and end times so that everyone will have a chance to enjoy being in the library again.

Be Smart, Stay Safe

  • If you or anyone in your household/family group is feeling sick, please stay home.
  • Visitors and staff are required to wear masks and maintain a minimum 6’ social distance while inside the library at all times. 
  • The copier and public computers are available for use. Please note that time spent on the computer is part of your 30-minute visit and cannot be extended. Due to social distancing protocols staff will be unable to provide one-on-one computer assistance at this time.
