Warsaw Public Library

WELCOME BACK TO THE LIBRARY!

We are slowly reopening to the public on Monday, 7/27 at 10:00 am.
The doors will be open, but with limited hours and available services.

Our temporary hours are as follows;
Monday and Tuesday 10-4
Wednesday and Thursday 1-7
Friday 1-5
Closed Saturdays.

You must be in good health to visit the library. Masks or face coverings are required for all patrons, 2 years of age and older, and must be worn at all times while in the building, covering both nose and mouth. If you are unable to medically tolerate a mask, you may not enter the building. Contact the library at 786-5650 for accommodations. We will gladly provide continued contactless curbside services to those who are uncomfortable entering the building or unable to wear a mask.

While in the building, please maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from others. If you are outside on library property, utilizing Wi-Fi, returning material to the book drop, or picking up material via curbside services, we also ask that you wear a mask, as social distancing may not always be possible due to the public nature of our facility, and you may come in close contact with others.

For the health and safety of staff and patrons, we may have to limit the amount of people in the building. We will allow only a very limited number of people in the building at a time. If we have already reached this capacity, you may be asked to wait outside until someone else leaves.

Please enter through the Court Street doors and exit out the Main Street doors. If you require use of the elevator, you may exit through the Court Street doors. We are asking that everyone keep their visit to the library to 30 minutes or less. This includes the following available services; browsing, computer use, copy, fax, and scanning. At this time, seating, meetings, extended stays, play, and in person programming has been suspended. Visits are limited to 30 minutes, once a day.

Two of our six public computers are available for 30 minutes of use. We are no longer providing shared headphones. You can bring your own, or purchase earbuds for $1 at the circulation desk. Please inform staff when you are done using the computer so it can be disinfected in between patrons.

All library materials must be returned in the outside book drop so that we can follow CDC-recommended quarantine procedures. Because we will quarantine all returns for at least 72 hours, returned items will not be checked in immediately. Please don’t worry if something you returned in the book drop is still on your library account – we have a grace period built in for quarantine and you will not be charged any overdue fines.

Only materials on our shelves are available. Holds/Inter-library loans between member libraries has been suspended. You can place holds on our materials for pick-up at Warsaw. We are unable to have any materials delivered from other libraries. If you are interested in borrowing from other libraries, you must pick those materials up at the owning library.

We are sad that we can't offer in-person programs like we usually do, but we have a great lineup of virtual programs for families. Check out our page, YouTube Channel, and website at https://warsawpubliclibrary.org/2020-summer-reading/ for more information.

We are still offering a summer reading program with prize incentives for all ages. Bingo Boards are available for children and teens, and challenge tickets are available for adults 19 and older.

As always, thank you for thinking of us, but we cannot accept donations of books, movies, etc. at this time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we do all we can to serve the community while protecting the health of our staff and patrons.

Please be aware that staff will ask you to leave the building if you do not wear a mask or face covering.

We can't wait to see you again!
