[Subject to Change] The Pillsbury Free Library Trustees have authorized a cautious return to lending library materials, using the “curbside pickup” or “takeout” method, beginning after Monday May 18, 2020.
Staff will gather the items while wearing gloves and face coverings, place them into a paper bag or cardboard box, and make an arrangement for pick up on the following business day outside the lower level (Depot St.) library entrance.
Patrons are required to maintain a safe distance [6 feet] from the staff during transfer of materials. The wearing of a face covering is also requested, to keep the transfer table sanitary.
No members of the public will be allowed inside the building at this stage of return to services.
All returning items must be placed in the book drop. They will then be quarantined for three days before being handled by staff, who will wear gloves to wipe them down with disinfectant.
These protocols will change with any change in information or circumstances.
If at any time this activity is determined to be endangering the health of the Library employees or the public, or there are insufficient numbers of staff available to handle the work, lending will be cancelled or paused again.
Thank you for your patience in working together to keep everyone safe.
