As libraries phase in services, the library experience will be different for staff, residents, and community partners than in pre-COVID-19 times.

Staffing - Indiana's library staff are its most valuable resource. Some staff will begin returning to the library, while other staff can not. Library staff will follow guidance from the CDC and new processes to maintain health and safety for all. Staff will work in shifts to limit contacts. Some Staff may wear masks, and for some activities, gloves. While we may look different, we are friendly and eager to serve.

Hours - Library hours will be limited. We want to see how our county does in decreasing cases. Online resources will continue 24/7.

Limited access to physical spaces - For the foreseeable future, our library will continue to restrict access to all of the library facilities, including meeting spaces, seating areas, and the computers. Libraries must follow guidance about the number of people per square foot, continued social distancing, and elevated sanitation practices. Staff and patron safety is a priority.

Our Library is in the planning stage to offer inside checkout, FAX services and computer use by appointment. Please be patient with us and give us time to adjust to this new normal. We may plan on check out by appointment on Monday, May 11th. I have a meeting with Indiana State Library by Zoom on Monday. I will let you know their recommendations as soon as I know them! WE HAVE MISSED YOU AND LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING YOU! ONCE WE MAKE A FINAL DECISION ON OUR PLAN WE WILL POST IT ON FACEBOOK, OUR WEBSITE AND THE NEWSPAPER!!!!
