Library to allow in-branch browsing


Services at Trails Regional Library will include appointments for in-branch browsing and technology usage as well as curbside material pickup beginning Monday, March 1, as part of the next phase of its reopening plan. 

Patrons should reserve an appointment before visiting the library by calling a local branch or completing an online form to make an appointment for an in-person visit or curbside service. 

For the health and safety of patrons and staff, the branches are following guidelines and precautions which meet or exceed health department guidelines. 

Masks or face shields covering the nose and mouth are required for all patrons and staff inside library buildings.

In-branch visits are limited to one hour and can include browsing material as well as using computers, printers and copiers. 

Children may accompany adults within one appointment if both parties stay together for the duration of the visit.

Children’s play areas and activities are not available. Meeting spaces are not available for use. All library events will be virtual until further notice.

Children’s Take and Make activities will be available at all branches and can be reserved by calling the branch.

Building occupancy is limited. Patrons may be asked to wait outside if capacity is reached.

The library encourages patrons to frequently clean hands using complimentary hand sanitizing stations, available throughout the building.

Anyone experiencing fever or flu-like symptoms is asked to not visit the library.

“Thank you for your patience and support during this time,” a library press release states. “We are excited to be able to serve our patrons in-person again, and we will strive to keep our patrons and staff healthy and safe as we reopen.”
