White Cloud Community Library re- opening information

Here is the current information for the re-opening process of the library!
Staff only: With the stay at home order lifted, staff will be working in the library the week of June 8th to accept returns and to prepare the library for future patron use.
Curbside: We will begin curbside after we finish preparations from the week of staff only access. The current projected date is June 15th. While providing curbside services, the building will be off limits to patrons and our hours of operation will be reduced. We would ask that any requests for materials are called in or requested online so that we may quickly and efficiently process the requests. Then, requested materials will be placed inside a bag and have the patron's name written on it. When you arrive to pick them up, a staff member will bring you the bag. For library materials that need to be returned, we will have bins placed out. These bins will be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in (the materials will be backdated to when they were returned ensure no fines are accumulated). We project curbside pickup will last 2-3 weeks before moving on to the next phase.
Partial Building Access: Once partial access to the building is permitted, we will resume our regular hours of operation. There will be a limit to the number of people allowed in the building at a time, and a loose time limit may be imposed to avoid lines of people waiting to enter. Chairs will be removed from most sections. We would ask that you have staff member do any copying you require. The number of computer terminals will be limited and the amount of time allowed may be reduced. This stage of reopening is fluid and may see some restrictions removed or added as it progresses. If there is a second outburst of COVID-19, the White Cloud Community Library may have to revert to Curbside pickup, or even close temporarily, pending government regulations and the risks to patron health.
Full Access: At the time being, it is impossible to predict when we may finally resume our normal operations, but we will do our best to make sure that all patrons are getting the help they need during this difficult time and beyond. If there is a second outburst of COVID-19, the White Cloud Community Library may have to revert to Partial Building Access, Curbside pickup, or even close temporarily, pending government regulations and the risks to patron health.
More information will be made available as each of these stages of opening draw near. We would like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation, both in the past and future!
