Dear Library Patrons:

 

This is a difficult and challenging time for us all. We place a very high priority on making the Library a safe and accessible place for our patrons and staff. To that end, I would like to share some of the actions we are taking in response to the coronavirus crisis, and also some suggestions on actions you can take.

Our actions

  • We are communicating with our local officials and monitoring information from authoritative sources such as the CDC
  • We have increased levels of cleaning at both locations with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles
  • There are hand sanitizers and disinfecting wipes available at both libraries
  • We have removed toys and games from the Childrens’ Areas in both libraries
  • We have temporarily suspended programming

What you can do to stay healthy and to help your fellow patrons

  • If you do not feel well, do not visit the library. If you have items due, please call us and we will work with you
  • We have many wonderful e-Resources which can be accessed from your home. Visit our website to learn more.
  • It is recommended that you regularly wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, make use of hand sanitizers and try not to touch your face
  • It is also recommended that you must cover your mouth and nose whenever coughing or sneezing
  • There are other recommendations on how to stay healthy, and help other people stay healthy, on the CDC website and we recommend that you visit it: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html 
  • If you need information on Coronavirus, the County number is 211 and the State hotline is (888) 364-3065.

 

Finally, this is a fluid situation. There will likely be many developments and we will be issuing updates whenever appropriate.
