The Library will reopen for limited services beginning Monday, June 15th. Patrons are encouraged to wear masks, practice safe social distancing, keep their visits to the library brief, and avoid gathering in large groups. Patrons may come to the library to browse the shelves, check out library materials, send faxes, and make copies. The computer lab, study rooms, library seating areas, and the children’s toys and puzzles will be unavailable. If you or your family is unwell, we ask that you stay home; we are happy to help you on the phone with renewals, holds, and accessing our digital services.
Our digital services will remain available to all patrons with ebooks and eaudiobooks on Libby, Sunflower eLibrary, and RB Digital. Staff are happy to help patrons navigate these services by phone or in person.
Holds pickup will remain in the lobby and our book drop remains open for returns. We will continue to quarantine returned library materials for three days before checking them back in and returning them to the shelves.
Passport services will resume on Monday, June 22nd, by appointment only. Appointments may be made by calling the Library at 558-3500 and must be made 24 hours in advance.
Story times will continue on Facebook Live and Summer Reading prize pickups will move from the gallery to inside the library.
During our closure, we have worked hard to implement procedures that will keep our staff and community safe. We installed protective barriers at the circulation and passport desks for safety. Self-checkout will continue to be available and a rigorous cleaning schedule is in place for all areas of the library. Staff will wear masks when not behind protective barriers.
We will continue to be open our regular library hours: 9:00 am -8:00 pm Monday-Thursday, 9:00 am -5:00 pm Friday, and 9:00 am -3:00 pm Saturday.
Please let us know if you have any questions about our reopening.
