WE ARE OPEN!!! Please come on in; just adhere to the restrictions that have been put in place. See previous post. Since we cannot have our regular story hour on Thursdays; I have some online suggestions instead. Go to storylineonline.net to see celebrities reading all sorts of fun books. Be sure to check out Dolly Parton's website imaginationlibrary.com also. She really brings stories to life. You can bring your kids into the library, we just can't meet in a group for now. Be sure to sign up for the Summer Library Program as well when you come in. I'm here and waiting to see you!!

The Wichita County Library will be reopening to the public on May 19th. However, we will have the following restrictions in place:
1. A maximum of 10 patrons allowed in the building at a time.
2. Patrons must adhere to the 6 feet social distancing guidelines.
3. There will be no story hour – Thursday morning toddler group until further notice.
4. Returning book will be placed in the plastic container at the desk and quarantined for 48 hours.
5. Limit your visits to 15 minutes or less.
6. The two public computers on the ends may be used. The public computer in the middle is not to be used at this time to encourage social distancing. Computer time is limited to one 15-minute session per patron a day until further notice. No loitering, no gaming on the computers until further notice.
7. We encourage patrons to use hand sanitizer and gloves while handling books.
8. We encourage patrons to sign the daily sign-in sheet so that we may track patrons in case of an outbreak. However, this is not mandatory.
I have cleared the children’s area of toys/seating that cannot be easily disinfected daily. We will be signing patrons up for the Summer Reading Program as soon as we open on May 19th. However, the Summer Reading Program will be a bit different this year. We will be starting it later than usual so it will only be 5 weeks long. We will still meet at the library on Thursdays from 1-2 but, we will be doing more outside projects and/or home projects this year.
Please be respectful of these restrictions! We want the library to be a safe space for all patrons. Breaking of these rules will not be tolerated.

We have had a lot of discussions lately about reopening. Due to our limited space and the many restrictions that need to be put in place, we will be reopening on May 19th. I will be posting the restrictions in the newspaper and on Facebook soon. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon.
