Starting May 1st, Lyme Free Library will be scheduling appointments for browsing at the library. Contactless front porch pickup will remain available for patrons that prefer grab and go services.
The visits will be limited to 2 people at a time. Patrons are limited to one 30-minute visit per day. Arrangements can be made for families with multiple children. Parents must remain with their children at all times.
Face coverings must be worn by all patrons over the age of two covering the nose and mouth. Social distancing of 6 feet needs to be maintained. Anyone who is unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition is urged to use front porch pickup. Patrons not wearing masks will not be allowed in the library. We will provide a mask if you do not have one. Gloves need to be worn – we will supply them (non- latex). This will ensure that we will not have to quarantine all materials that have been touched but not borrowed. If you are not feeling well or have been in contact with COVID in the last 14 days, we encourage you to stay home and enjoy our online services.
Please know that the health and safety of our staff and patrons is our first priority. We clean and sanitize work surfaces, restrooms and equipment daily. We have taken steps to make the library a safe environment for all: Plexiglass has been installed on the checkout counter, we have positioned hand sanitizing stations throughout the library, our bathroom has been updated with health & safety in mind, and we have installed UV disinfection lights in our heating systems.
In order to make an appointment, call 315-649-5454. Appointments are 30 minutes long to allow for cleaning between patrons.
On the day of an appointment, please knock on the side door by the parking lot to be admitted.
