It’s a very strange year for everyone not just the library. We are trying to make it as normal as possible.
Right now we offer 2 computers for patron use. 30 minutes on a computer per person. We are trying to limit how many patrons are in the library at a time, and trying to keep a safe distance apart.
In September the library did decide to go ahead and have story time. This year the only kids coming are all from the same day care and half are related and there are only 5, so far so good with the story time kids.
We do have some remote learners the come to the library on Wednesday afternoon for their “Library” time. This is also a small group. So far they seem to working out okay.
We also are trying something new with craft days. A limit of 6 kids at a time at two different times and different days. [does that make sense?] Our first Halloween craft was Friday, Ocotber16th at 4: and 5:00 and the on October 21st at 4:00. I worked out pretty good so there will be another craft on October 28th and 29th.
Food club has also started back up. Most of these people have been around each other the whole time or are related.
It seems to be working for now, but Covid-19 cases are on the rise and flu season is starting so we are taking it one day at a time.
Patron are allowed to browse the shelves and pick out their own items. Anything that comes in the library is quarantined for four days before check-in. Tables, shelves, desk, chairs and door handles are wiped down once patron leave.
Stay Safe! Stay Healthy! If your sick STAY HOME!
