This plan is intended for use as a guideline for resuming public services at the Dorothy Bramlage Public Library. Library Director Susan Moyer said that the phases, dates and items will change as necessary to meet the orders and guidelines provided by federal, state and local public health officials and the goal to stop the spread of the corona virus. It is possible that outbreaks may require additional periods of closing the library or modifications of services in the coming months.
Patrons are asked to not visit the library if they are ill and/or exhibiting any of the symptoms of the Corona Virus (chills, fever, coughing, shortness of breath) or if they know or believe they have been exposed to the virus
Patrons are also asked to follow these steps while in the library to protect themselves and staff members:
· Clean hands upon entering and before leaving with the materials provided
· Cover your coughs and sneezes
· Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
· Wear a mask when possible but be prepared to lower mask when doing transactions that require positive identification
Common touch surfaces will be cleaned between users so time must be allowed to facilitate this cleaning.
The current plan is to reopen the library in phases beginning Tuesday, May 19. The first phase will be very limited and consist of three walk-up services at the north entrance and a few inside the library on an appointment only basis. Other services will be resumed in three subsequent phases.
