Please observe the safety precautions in the upcoming section.

Safety Measures and Precautions

Safety for our patrons, staff and the community is our first priority. Library staff observe all safety precautions and computers are cleaned after each use. Staff will be able to help you from a safe distance using remote control software from the Reference Station. Please observe the following safety precautions:

  • If you are feeling ill, including a fever or cough, do not keep your appointment.
  • Masks are required at all times. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you.   
  • Social distancing of at least 6 feet must be maintained at all times.
  • Please make use of our hand sanitizing stations.

Thank you for your understanding and patience!
