Jersey Shore Library reopens to the public

JERSEY SHORE — The Jersey Shore Public Library has reopened to the public, for in-person services as of June 15. The reopening is in accordance with the guidance and framework laid out by the CDC and the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.

For the safety of the staff and other patrons, masks or another face covering will be required to enter the building and hand sanitizer is being provided at several “Sanitation Stations” throughout the library. A Plexiglas shield has been installed around the circulation desk and all library materials will continue to go through the mandatory quarantine period upon return before becoming available to be checked out again.

To maintain proper social distancing, computers use will be limited to 50 percent of the computer and will be on a first-come, first-served basis, unless a reservation is made ahead of time.

The 2020 Summer Reading Program, “Imagine Your Story,” also kicked-off on June 15. The staff has been working behind the scenes to provide quality virtual programming throughout the summer months.

New for this year will be online book logging. This tool will eliminate the need for paper book logs and filling out single tickets; further reducing the amount of contact between individuals.

Updates, additional information and instructions will be posted on the library’s website www.jerseyshorepubliclibrary.com, and Facebook page.
