Here is what you can expect from each of our re-opening phases. Each of these plans are subject to change due to local guidelines. We may even revert back to previous phases, if necessary.
During Stage One, the Library will be closed to the public either by executive order, by
motion of the Library Board, or by the Library Director pursuant to the Pandemic Policy, and only essential staff will be allowed to report on site.
The building is closed to all visitors. Remote services are available, including webchat, assistance via phone, and the contact forms on our website. All events are produced online. The book drop is closed in Stage One, but open in Stage Two, and due dates on all materials are extended for the duration of the building closure. Applications for temporary library cards are available online.
In Stage Two, non-essential staff are allowed to report back and prepare the library for physical services. Services remain the same as Stage One, and the building is still closed, but the book drop is now open.
Our outdoor book drop is open for returns and curbside service is resumed for physical library materials. Returned items are quarantined before being shelved with the rest of the collection. Remote assistance is still available online or by phone. Online library card applications are still accepted. All events are still produced online.
Chromebooks are available for 2 hour checkouts. Call 734-287-4840 for more information and to place a reservation.
Chromebook & hotspot checkouts are available and can be reserved via chat or over the phone at 734-287-4840. Chromebook & hotspot returns must be made at the front desk during regular business hours. Masks must be worn covering your mouth and nose at all times. Checkout for physical materials is available through curbside pickup. Remote assistance is available online, over the phone, or via chat during regular business hours. Returns (other than computers & hotspots) should be made in the dropbox near the south entrance. Events are online only.
