Current Library Operations due to COVID-19

As of Monday, July 6, the library is open to the public.

Hours of operation:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 
The library is CLOSED on Wednesdays and Sundays

MASKS ARE NOW REQUIRED IN THE LIBRARY. Per City Council action on Tuesday, July 28, and Governor Evers’ executive order that goes into affect on Saturday, August 1, masks are required by anyone entering the library. Staff will be happy to provide you with a disposable facemask if needed. If you are unable to wear a mask, we encourage you to take advantage of our curbside and online services.

We continue to provide curbside service and we encourage you to use it! Just call the library to let us know that you wish to pick up your items, and then call again when you’re in the library parking lot. Your items will be placed on a table in the lobby.

The Surprise Me! Request form is still available! Staff will be happy to pull library materials for you based on your reading/watching preferences. The form can be found HERE.

Patrons are asked to stay home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. Those who choose to visit the library are asked to wear a face mask if they are medically able to do so and to frequently wash and/or sanitize their hands. Disposable masks will be available upon request while supplies last, and hand sanitizer is available throughout the library.

Patrons will be allowed to enter the library to pick up their holds, browse the collections, and use the new self-checkout. Patrons are strongly encouraged to make their visits short as a smaller occupancy capacity is recommended by the Rock County Health Department.

A limited number of computers are available for 1-hour sessions. No appointment necessary.

Patrons are asked to return all library materials in the lobby book returns, which are available 24/7. The book returns by the circulation desk will be unavailable and staff will not personally accept returns. All returns will be quarantined for 94 hours before they are checked in. Staff will be happy to help patrons with any concerns about fines and overdues.

Other Restrictions:

  1. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  2. Please note that ALL toys, puzzles, and games have been put into storage and the mini-store front area is closed off.
  3. Most of the furniture has been removed as well.
  4. Study and meeting rooms will be unavailable
  5. The SPARK is closed.

Library operations will continually be analyzed, and changes may be made for the safety and comfort of the staff and the community members. We appreciate our patrons being patient with us as we adjust our operations.
