As a nation, we all have been following the progression of COVID-19. With numbers on the rise, as of recent, health officials are stressing the importance on ways to keep yourself safer when it comes to being exposed to the coronavirus.
When the Abilene Public Library went through a shutdown last spring, we re-opened and began implementing new measures to help keep the community safe as they returned to our facilities. More than six months later, we continue to perform these same safety procedures, and would like to address them with the public again to reflect what we're doing to help you remain safe while visiting the library.
Julee Hatton, Director of Library Services for the City of Abilene, shared what staff is doing on a continual basis at your Abilene Public Library, and you can see so for yourself in our latest video. Such methods include:
- Encouraging visitors to wear face masks
- Cleaning and quarantining all materials returned to the library
- Maintaining social distancing at our computer labs
- Cleaning lab computers after each use
- Having hand sanitizer available at all service desks
- Promoting the use of self-checkout stations
We can all do our part to stay safe during this pandemic and we invite you to come out and visit us at either the Main Library (202 Cedar St) or the South Branch Library (4310 Buffalo Gap Rd). If you have any concerns, please feel more than free to contact us and we'll do our best to address any and all issues.
