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.
- 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.
