While in the building, a social distance of six feet or more will be required. Patrons are asked to place any items touched during browsing in the bins for quarantine.
Our normally cozy seating won’t be available. Public computers are also off limits for now. The wi-fi signal reaches into the parking lot and no password is needed to access the internet. Returns must be placed in the outdoor book drops.
