Library Computers Update

On Thursday, October 1, the libraries will allow patrons access to computers on a limited basis as part of their Express Computer Access plan. Patrons will be able to use library computers during 30-minute sessions that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The use of the computers will require constant staff monitoring and thorough cleaning between each session. To maintain physical distancing, staff will move devices around in the walk-through area or adjacent rooms as appropriate.
