SAFETY MEASURES
The safety of our patrons and staff is our first priority. We are requiring masks now, due to the state mandate. We are also monitoring building occupancy and may limit the number of people allowed in the building at one time if necessary.

Hand sanitizer is available to staff and patrons. Staff and patrons are encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly and frequently.

Library staff regularly clean frequently touched and high traffic areas according to CDC recommendations. The Library contracts with a company that cleans the Library each weeknight using products recommended by the CDC. Some equipment has been temporarily moved or removed to help keep the Library as safe and clean as possible.

LIBRARY MATERIALS QUARANTINING AND CLEANING
Upon return, every item is quarantined for 96 hours, as recommended by lab testing. Returned items will appear as still checked out on a patron's account until the items are out of quarantine. Fines will not be charged on quarantined items returned on time.
