The Roswell Public Library is looking forward to opening soon!
While the library does not have a re-open date, these are some of the changes that you can expect to see when it is open.
As patrons come through the front door, there will be a return box in the Lobby. All items coming back to the library must be placed there or in the outside book drop in the alley behind the library. This will give library staff the chance to quarantine these items before cleaning and re-shelving them.
All items will be held for three days, which is the recommended time by both the CDC and ALA. The grace period has already been adjusted so that no one will have any overdue books or fines for those three days.
Additionally, there are self-check out stations for books at the Circulation desk. Sneeze guards have been installed and guides have been placed on the floor using tape to help maintain social distancing.
All of the public computer stations have been relocated to maintain social distancing and to improve our patrons experience using our computers. Many chairs have also been temporarily removed so that it will be easier to stay 6 feet apart.
The Children’s Area is closed to the public. Staff will retrieve materials upon request.
The library’s meeting rooms will not be available and there will not be in person programs until the repairs are complete.
The library will continue to offer a concierge service, Library On The Go, for library materials with delivery through the new service window on the east side of the building. This service window is not yet installed, but it will be available upon reopening.
Last, but most definitely not least, all patrons will be required to have their library card and wear a mask before entering the library. Staff members will be practicing enhanced cleaning throughout the day. We are looking forward to seeing you at the library again!
