Our Re-Opening Policies

We will be re-opening Monday, June 15th at 9 am.

9am-6pm Monday through Friday
9am-2pm Saturday
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am-10am will be dedicated for our high risk patrons. Please reserve this time those at higher risk.
What is our Maximum capacity at this time? 6 patrons will be allowed in the library at a time. Our Doors will be locked to help us enforce this policy.
Are Masks required? Yes. All staff and patrons must wear masks. A mask will be provided for you, if you do not have a mask.
What if patrons are not comfortable wearing a mask or entering the library? We will still offer curbside service to those who want it. For those who want to order with curbside service, call (920)787-2988 to reserve materials or visit the online catalog to place your holds.
Will we allow children inside the library? Children under 16 are allowed if they are with, and supervised by, an adult. Those who do not comply will be asked to leave the library. Our Children's room is closed off for playing.
Will we allow PC use? Yes. The computers will be spaced 6 feet apart. Computer time will be limited to 1 hour and will be prioritized for job searching, business, homework, etc. (time may be extended if tasks cannot be completed within an hour). There will be no gaming on the computers at this time.
Will we accept cash payments? To limit contact with germs, we will have a jar in which you can place money for fines, copies, and donations. Please have exact change, write a check, or give extra to the library, as we will not be dealing with change.
What safety measures are we taking? 

  • We will regularly sanitize frequently touched surfaces with approved sanitizing wipes.
  • Returned items are quarantined for 72 hours. (You will notice a lag on your account.)
  • Computers are spaced 6 feet apart.
  • Upholstered furniture has been removed.
  • The water fountain/bubbler is out of service. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be available for patrons and staff.
  • All programming will be virtual on Facebook and Beanstack
  • We maintain a cow’s length apart!

Any sick person, including library staff, will not be allowed in the building.
Signs posted in the entrance, and inside the building will advise patrons:

If you are sick, stay home. If you are extra-vulnerable, we encourage you to stay home, use our Curbside pick-up service, try Libby by Overdrive or Hoopla, and checkout our Summer Reading Challenge! 
Please maintain a cow’s length distance (6ft) between yourself and other patrons or staff.
Wear a mask and wash your hands regularly. 
Look, don’t touch, unless necessary. If you touch an item that you decide not to take, please put it in one of the quarantine bins found around the library to be quarantined for 72 hours.

We are sanitizing surfaces regularly, but we cannot guarantee the library is germ-free, please understand that you assume risk when entering a public space.
Cooperation with this policy keeps the library available to the public.
