The library is open. Our reopening policy is available to read on the library website (wawa.olsn.ca). We will be allowing five people in at a time for no more than 15 minutes at a time. Anyone wishing to use the public computers must call ahead to book a time. This is to avoid having too many people in the library. The time limit on the computers will be 30 minutes. Masks must be worn, social distancing must be respected and hand sanitizer will be provided. We will ask that you read a questionnaire prior to entering the library. Only the main library entrance will be available at this time. Our hours initially will remain Tuesday-Friday from 11:00am-4:00pm. The drop box will remain open at all times. All library materials will be returned in the drop box, not the circulation desk. You will be required to leave your name and contact info so that we may complete a daily Covid-19 Tracking.
SANITIZATION OF LIBRARY MATERIALS: All library materials go through a sanitization process before they are checked out to the public. When materials are returned through the Book Drop, we are using gloves to handle material and then all material sit in a box for a minimum of 72 hours. After 72 hours, the material is removed and checked in and wiped down with 70% alcohol solution and placed on the book cart. The material will sit on the cart for a minimum of 72 hours. After that, materials are then filed back into the collection and ready to be checked out again.
Sheet! For those not comfortable entering public buildings, we will continue curbside pickup.
NEW BOOKS: This week’s New Books are “The Girl from Widow Hills” by Megan Miranda, “28 Summers” by Elin Hilderbrand, “The Black Swan” by Karen Robards and “The Smallest Lights in the Universe” by Sara Seager.
