Phase 4 of our reopening plan began on Monday, June 29th.

The library building is open with limited hours:    12pm - 6pm Monday-Friday

We continue to offer Curbside pickup:

Curbside pick up hours:    
Monday-Wednesday-Friday: 12:00 - 4:00pm
Tuesday - Thursday:   2:00pm - 6:00pm

You may place holds online in the library's catalog or can call us at (269) 983-7167.  Limit of 10.


What you should know before entering the library:

  •     Patrons over age 5 are required to wear a facial covering in the library at all times.

  •     We ask that you limit your visit to one hour, maximum.

  •     No more than 100 people are allowed in the building at one time (including staff).

  •     No food or beverages are permitted unless medically necessary.

  •     Patrons must practice social distancing at all times.  Remain 6 feet away from others, and follow guidelines in the book stacks throughout the building.

  •     Further questions may be addressed in the Frequently Asked Questions section of our Reopening Plan.

 

What you should know about returning books:

  • All items are being quarantined for at least 72 hours upon return before being checked out to anyone else. 

  • The items will be removed from your account at that time. 

  • Because we are quarantining items for a more than adequate amount of time and are taking every precaution, we ask that you do not use cleaning products on the materials.     Many products may damage the items.
