Pandemic Patron Code of Conduct Addendum
To keep volunteers and the public safe, and the library open:
- Don’t come into the library if you feel sick, have been exposed to COVID-19 or are from out-of-state and have not quarantined for 14 days. If you have tested negative for COVID-19 in the last 72 hours, you may enter the library.
- Only 5 people are permitted in the library based on our square footage—this includes volunteers and patrons. Children count in the number of people allowed in the building.
- Only 1 person at a time per family is allowed in the library.
- Please sign in when entering the library.
- Children must be with an adult at all times.
- Please limit your time in the library to 30 minutes.
- Face coverings are required for all volunteers and patrons, per Governor Mills’ Executive Order #49 FY
- Maintain 6 feet physical distance in ALL areas of the library.
- Follow library safety procedures and instructions for accessing library materials.
- No food or drink is allowed, including closed containers.
- Please limit personal items brought into the library and avoid setting things down.
- Any items you touch, but do not check out, must be put in the quarantine area, so that they can be cleaned.
- In two weeks, when you are returning items, please put them in the outside book depository.
- All returned items will be cleaned/disinfected and quarantined for 72 hours before re-shelving.
Please take note:
Those who do not wear a face covering will be limited to curbside service, subject to volunteer availability.
While we are following the state’s COVID-19 Prevention Checklist for Public Library Guidance, patrons should be aware that there is some risk inherent in using shared spaces with shared materials. We cannot guarantee a perfectly safe space.
