COVID 19 Update August 10, 2020
The Loudonville Public Library thanks all of you for your patience during the COVID-19 pandemic. We just want to remind our patrons that we are open to the public. We have implemented protocols to keep both patrons and staff members safe. Per the latest REALM project test results, library materials will be quarantined for a minimum of 4 days before they are checked back in. Hold pickup has resumed inside the building, but the library will continue to offer no contact hold pickup services for patrons. At this time, play areas, the Friends’ Bookstore, and Public Meeting Rooms will remain closed to the public for the health and safety of both our patrons and staff members. We are offering collection browsing; we ask that any items you touch that you do not want to check out be placed in the baskets provided throughout the Library. These items will be quarantined before being placed back in circulation. Patrons will see plexiglass barriers, a variety of new signs, and markings to promote social distancing. Please remember to utilize 6’ social distancing, wear a mask, and please do not enter the library if you are not feeling well.
Current Library Hours Are:
Monday through Thursday 9am-7pm
Friday and Saturday 10am-5pm
The library is open from 9am-10am Monday through Thursday so that the high risk members of our community may have this time to visit the library.
We look forward to seeing you!
Stay safe and healthy my friends!
Melissa Mallinak, Library Director
