For Our Patrons
Patrons must wear face masks inside during their entire visit.
Patrons will enter through the side door and exit through the front door. This is to limit congestion at the circulation desk as space is tight near the front door.
We ask that all patrons use the hand sanitizing station upon entering the building.
The number of patrons inside the building will be limited. If we reach our limit, we will ask that you wait in your car and we will call you when you can enter.
Time spent inside the library will be limited to the amount needed for materials selection and check out.
No computers will be available to use. WiFi is still available outside the building.
Restrooms will not be open to patrons during this time.
No book or movie donations will be received at this time. Please hold them for a future drop-off when we are fully open.
Most important, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.
If you are not comfortable entering the building, we will bring materials to you in your car.
Please call ahead or send an email to order your books, DVDs, magazines, etc.
When you arrive at the library, call the branch number to let us know you are outside - 410.438.3596
For your health and safety, our staff will do the following…
We will wear face masks.
We will wipe down door handles, surfaces and the circulation desk frequently.
All returned materials will be cleaned or quarantined for 3 days at minimum, often longer.
We will greet you at the side door and help you find your materials as easily and quickly as possible. We will have you exit through the front door.
We will be so happy to see you but will ask that you limit your time in the building during this period.
