Current Status

Reopening Guidelines

These measures will help us to keep everyone in the Jefferson community safe and healthy. We are always watching for new guidance from health authorities, so these guides may be updated over time.

Following the latest statewide mandate, all patrons, 5 years and older, are required to wear a face covering inside the library building. Curbside services are available at the door or in the parking lot. 

IF YOU ARE FEELING ILL, OR SHOWING ANY SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE LIBRARY IN PERSON. If you have a cough, sore throat, fever, loss of taste/smell, or severe tiredness, help us keep the community safe by setting up Libby, Kanopy, and other services you can access from home. If you have been diagnosed with Covid-19, you may not attend in-person programs until you have recovered. Please give us a call if you need any help accessing online services. We’re here to help!

Face coverings are required inside the building. We have disposable masks available, although patrons are encouraged to bring their own. If you cannot wear a mask inside the library, curbside services are available without appointments during all open hours.

Patrons are encouraged but NOT required to maintain six feet of distance between members of your household and others. We strive to make our space welcoming to all patrons. Accordingly, please respect the needs of patrons, who are deciding to social distance.

Avoid contact with high-touch surfaces as possible. While browsing in the stacks, try to avoid touching materials that you don’t intend to take with you. We are sanitizing high-touch surfaces, and have hand sanitizer stations in the library.

 

 

Curbside Services are available during all open hours. Patrons do not need an appointment to pick-up holds, return items or pick-up Take&Make kits using the curbside service.

You can either call the library from the City Hall/Library parking lot to have items brought to your vehicle or knock on the library’s front door to collect items there.

If you have questions or would like to contact us:

Patrons are encouraged to return items in the 24/7 library drop box located in the City Hall parking lot. In-person returns are also available whenever picking-up holds or checking out.

Place holds on your account for books, movies, audiobooks, or anything else we normally check out to you in person. You can do this the usual way on our online catalog or you can contact us directly. The CCRLS courier is currently running, but please expect occasional delays!

Let us know when you’ve arrived at the library for pick up. You can call ahead (or simply knock on the door) and we will bring your checked-out items straight to you.

Keep your items as long as you like! The library will not be charging late fines until further notice. To return items, you can use our 24/7 book drop (located in the City Hall parking lot) or give us your returns at the door.
