Last week, the Frank Sarris Public Library suspended operations after it came to our attention that a staff member had tested for positive for COVID-19. We immediately enacted quarantine procedures and temporarily shut down our building. No other staff member to date has shown COVID-19 symptoms.
Starting Wednesday, February 17, the Frank Sarris Public Library will resume our curbside service during the following hours of operation:
Monday-Thursday: 10am – 7pm
Friday & Saturday: 12pm – 4pm
If you have items on hold at our location, our circulation desk staff will contact you regarding pick-up instructions. We will also reopen the Murdock Street entrance vestibule during the above hours so patrons can pick up federal and state tax forms and instruction booklets.
In addition, starting Monday, February 22, our library will reopen for in-person services during the hours listed above. Wearing a mask that covers both an individual’s nose and mouth will be required for all patrons entering our building. Curbside services are available to those who are not able to wear proper face covering. Patrons can browse for items on the first floor, use our computers, copy and fax documents. For our prices regarding services like printing and faxing, please visit our website.
The Children’s Department on the second floor will be temporarily closed. New and recent additions to our children and young adult collections will be available for browsing on the first floor. If a patron needs an item from our Children’s Department, a staff member can retrieve it for them.
Computers and study rooms are first come, first serve. Computers are limited to one hour per patron. Due to social distancing requirements, staff are temporarily not able to offer assistance on the computers. Study rooms are limited to two hours per patron and occupancy, at this time, is one person/room. If you need to reserve a study room for a specific date and time, there will be a charge of $5.00 per hour. We ask that all patrons please be mindful of others when using either a computer or a study room.
We would like to thank our patrons for their continued patience and understanding during this time and we look forward to welcoming you back.
