Express Service Visit Guidelines

If a library offers Express Service Hours, you can enter for a short visit. You can help us open the library doors and keep them open by making your library visit quick, efficient, and safe.  

  • Inside the library, visitors ages two and up are required to wear masks & follow social distancing guidelines.
  • To keep all ages safe, there is a limit to how many people can be in the library at one time. 
  • You won't see many chairs in the library during Express Service, but you can sit for a quick turn on a computer. 
  • Please keep your visit short, no longer than 20-30 minutes, so everyone can enjoy the library.
