The Heart of America Library is now open to the public and will return to our regular operating hours. There are some guidelines, and we ask the cooperation of patrons:
If you are sick or feeling unwell please do not come to the library – opt for delivery or curbside pickup.
If you would rather not come into the library, we will continue to do delivery and curbside pick-up.
If you would like to come into the library we will be here for regular hours. Patrons are encouraged to select items and leave in a timely manner.
Social distancing is encouraged. Use the sanitizer unit on the small table by the entrance when you enter the building.
Please put all returns in the book drop outside. Items will continue to be quarantined for a week.
When checking out items, put each item through the opening in the plexi-glass dividers, allowing them to be scanned. The employee will not be touching the item, only scanning.
Only two public computers will be available. Only adult usage for business purposes…no games, etc.
