Library Visit Information and F.A.Q.
The Grantsburg Public Library Board of Trustees made changes to the Grantsburg Public Library Pandemic Policy on Wednesday, December 2nd.
1. The library is OPEN! Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday from 10:00-5:00, Thursday from 3:00-7:00, Friday and Saturday from 10:00-2:00. Curbside appointments are available Tuesdays from 5:00-7:00 and Friday from 10:00-2:00. Curbside service is available for ALL PATRONS during open library hours. Please call the library to request this service.
2. Guidelines for our younger visitors have changed! “Patrons under the age of 14 must be supervised by an adult at all times”. All interactive play areas are still closed.
3. Although the door is open, the library is still limiting the number of patrons inside the library. If the library is at capacity, the staff may ask you to wait to enter the library.
How does this affect my library visit? Previously, appointments were required to visit the library and staff met patrons at the door. As of 12/7/2020, the library door is unlocked and open! We do suggest and encourage computer appointments to ensure that a space is available for you when you arrive. The library is limiting capacity based on guidelines from the Wisconsin Department of Instruction (DPI) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). If the library is at capacity when you arrive, the staff may ask you to wait to enter the library.
How is the child guideline different from before? The previous version of the Pandemic Policy asked that ALL patrons under 16 be supervised “one on one” by an adult. The updated version removes the “one on one” portion of the policy and lowers the age at which patrons may visit the library unsupervised.
Can I handle library materials? Yes! Patrons are encouraged to browse library materials. The library has provided a cart by the circulation desk for any materials you choose not to check out from the library during your visit?
“I returned my item but I still see it checked out on my account.” Library materials are quarantined after placed in the book return for 96 hours. It is possible the item is still waiting to be checked in. If an item is still showing “checked out” on your account after one week, please feel free to contact the library.
Will this policy change again? The Grantsburg Public Library Pandemic Policy is a living document. The Grantsburg Library Board of Trustees discusses the plan every month.
