How we are doing things now
The library is open its regular hours by appointment for browsing and checking out books and other items, using a computer, and for copying, faxing, scanning, and printing. Appointments allow us to make sure social distancing is possible. Call us at 323-8510 to make an appointment. If you forget to call ahead, you are welcome to step inside (with a mask on) to ask a staff member if there’s an opening. We may ask you to wait until another patron leaves if it is busy.
We will also continue curbside pickup for borrowing library books and other materials for the foreseeable future. Borrowed items can be returned in the book drop anytime. We are beginning to hold some programs outdoors, with distancing protocols in place.
A few words about masks
We are all wearing masks at the library to protect patrons, staff, and our community. If you forget to bring a mask, we can provide a disposable mask. If you cannot wear a mask, we can offer all of our services outside the library, including a laptop computer, if needed. We are following NH Bureau of Infectious Disease Control guidelines for mask wearing. Masks are required for anyone over the age of 2. [We will discuss the age requirement at staff meeting on Aug. 31.] Masks should cover both nose and mouth at all times. For outdoor programs, please wear a mask unless you are seated at least 6 feet away from others. Thank you all for wearing a mask!
