Library to Remain at Phase 2 with Limited Library Hours and Curbside Service

The Leavenworth Public Library’s goal is THE MOST SERVICE, THE SAFEST WAY.

 

Covid-19 cases in Leavenworth County have recently increased. The Library has decided to delay the next phase until cases drop for two straight weeks.

 

The Library facility will continue to be open limited hours from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday through Saturday.

VISITS LIMITED TO ONE-HALF HOUR.

Public computers, copier and fax are not available.

Curbside pickup hours remain the same:
    11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday
    11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday


How to place a hold on material

 
The following guidelines will remain in place:

> 30 patrons allowed in the building at one time

> 30 minutes maximum per visit; one visit per day

> Patrons encouraged to wear masks and gloves

> Social distancing: Keep a distance of 6 feet between you and others

> Return all materials to the outside book drop

> Public computers, copier and fax not available

> Kansas Room, Learning Center and meeting rooms are closed

> THE LIBRARY IS NOT ACCEPTING ANY DONATIONS OF BOOKS, MAGAZINES, MUSIC CDS OR MOVIE DVDS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

 

This plan is subject to change with recommendations from local and state health officials.
