Library limits its capacity

The Oscar Grady Public Library in Saukville will roll back its plans to reopen due to revised guidelines from public health officials in reaction to the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the area.

That means restricting occupancy of the library to 25% of capacity, encouraging patrons to use curbside pick-up service and canceling all outdoor events.

Earlier this month, the library launched phase two of its reopening process, with expanded hours, services and occupancy levels.

Hours of operation will remain 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. The library will remain closed on weekends.

Services will continue to include checkout and return of library materials, Inter-Library Loan services, public internet and wireless access, printing, photocopying and faxing and access to the Digital Media Conversion Lab and the Jim and John Peterson archive collection.

The Youth Services Department and Youth Circulation Desk will remain closed to the public, although materials located in the Youth Services Department will be available for checkout.

The library’s Community Room and drinking fountains will not be available for public use.

Library staff will continue to wear cloth masks, wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. Plastic shields have been installed at the circulation desk.

Contact the library at 284-0062 or visit its website for information.
