Skowhegan Free Public Library Re-Opening Plan
When will the library be open to the public again?
We know it has been a long few months, and many folks are ready to be back in the library - and we are excited to have you all back! It will be a little longer still, but we DO officially have a date for re-opening! We will be opening our doors to the public on Monday, July 20th. We won't be back to our regular hours yet - we'll continue to follow our current Curbside Pick-up hours for now, so Mondays and Wednesday from 2pm-6pm and on Fridays from 10am-2pm - but we will be allowing patrons back in to browse and to use computers.
The library will be running a little bit differently than normal, and we do have some guidelines for use of the library in the coming months after re-opening. We will require everyone to wear masks inside the building - disposable masks will be made available, but if you are unable to wear a mask, remember - we will still be offering curbside pickup! There will be no seating or use of the conference room at this time, and computer usage will be strictly limited to 30 minutes per person. The children's floor will be open, but will be restricted to one family at a time. We will only be allowed a limited capacity at this time, and so we will be asking all families and individuals to make their trip to the library as brief as possible, and that after selecting your materials you please proceed immediately to the checkout desk so that we can make sure everyone has the opportunity to come into the library during our limited hours.
We realize that this is a lot of new rules to take into consideration, but we are very excited to be able to see all of our wonderful patrons again soon!
