Health Procedures

The Library Board of Trustees has approved several new protocols for the health and safety of the staff and patrons.

  • Please do not schedule an appointment if you are ill.
  • To avoid contact with Village Office employees and Police Officers, our entrance has been moved to the rear of the library (the glass door by the children’s section).
  • A gravel walkway has been installed.
  • A hand sanitizer will be at our new entrance and you will need to use it before continuing into the Library.
  • Staff member will take your temperature with a no contact thermometer.
  • Masks are required for patrons over the age of 2.
  • Six feet social distancing MUST be maintained.
  • Public restrooms, water fountains, toys, sitting areas, and headphones ARE NOT available for use.
  • Return items should be dropped in our regular return bin,  (located next to the main entrance).
  • Personal bags will NOT be allowed past the check in station. We have a table for you to set your bags on.
  • Browsing baskets are available.
  • Our Circulation Department has been moved to the office. Please bring your library card. Staff member CANNOT touch item(s) that you are checking out. You will need to hold your item(s) up to the office window so staff member can scan. You will not get a receipt.

If you are uncomfortable with any of this new procedure, curbside pickup service will continue and you are encouraged to use that service.

We appreciate your continued support of the Clear Lake Library.
