How It Works

Browsing

  1. Please limit the number of library users you bring so as many families as possible get an opportunity to browse.
  2. Arrive at the library during open hours with your library card and mask. Visitors are expected to wear masks to enter the building.
  3. Browse the collection and select item you would like to borrow. Try to limit items touched to those you wish to borrow.
  4. Place any items you choose not to borrow on the top of library shelves for staff to collect and reshelve
  5. Check out using your card at the staff desk or our self check machine.
  6. Please maintain 6 feet between you and other patrons/staff as much as possible.
  7. There are capacity limits on browsing, if the library is full you may be asked to wait before entering.
