COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") Updates
Announcing Plaistow Library Reopening: Phase 2 Begins July 6!
On June 1, we began Phase 1 of our reopening plan by unlocking our book drop and offering curbside service. Today, we are pleased to announce that we will enter Phase 2 and reopen our doors to the public, on a limited basis, starting on Monday, July 6th, at 9AM.
First, we must emphasize that the COVID-19 pandemic is still a clear and present threat to the health of our staff, our patrons, and the community at large; therefore, we have implemented systems, guidelines, and protocols to help protect us all, including:
- Requring face masks and physical distancing for all in-library visitors
- Maximum occupancy of 20 people at a time
- A daily limit of 1 hr 45 min. in the building per person
- Basic cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces every 2 hrs
Before entering the building, please return all borrowed items directly to the book drop for a 3-day quarantine.
Other important details, including answers to frequently asked questions, available HERE.
Curbside Service is available for those who do not wish to enter the building and those who do not wear face masks. Appointment bookings for curbside pickup are no longer necessary. Place a hold (here's how) on the item in our catalog, then just call us at 382-6011 when you’re here and we’ll bring your item(s) out to you.
