FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Why is the library closed in the middle of the day?
A: The purpose of the mid-day closure is to allow staff time to sanitize commonly used areas and to provide a no contact pickup option for members requesting holds.
Q: Why can’t I eat or drink inside the library?
A: At this time we are not allowing food or drink inside the library. Since masks must be kept on at all times, there is no safe way for people to eat inside the building.
Q: Why can I only use the internet station for one hour?
A: With limited capacity inside the library, we are limiting the amount of time that patrons are allowed to use computers. This will give more people an opportunity to use our computer services.
