Library Appointments

Dear Library Patrons,

Richland Community Library is thrilled to report a wonderful response for curbside service over the last three weeks.  This week we have been asking patrons what, if anything, we could do to support patrons better during this curbside phase of reopening.  Most have reported they are very pleased with the ease and safety of the curbside process. Because the spread of COVID is still present, we trust our patrons recognize that RCL’s Infectious Disease Phased Reopening Plan and Policy was adopted to protect staff and community.

Beginning on Tuesday, July 7,  the library will offer, in addition to curbside,  appointment times for patrons to visit the library for 30 minutes to browse and locate materials to check out.  We will be well-staffed to assist you.  If you need to use a computer, the fax machine, or printer, the staff can schedule a time to assist you. To schedule a time, please call us at 269-629-9085.

We will reevaluate this plan at the end of the week with the hope that COVID cases decline rather than increase.

The safety of our staff and community prompts us to remind you of the following precautions and procedures while inside the library:

  • Per Executive Orders, all people entering a public building will be required to wear a mask.  We know our patrons realize this is required for all, without exception. If you do not own a mask, we will gladly provide one for you. If you do not want to wear a mask for the short time you are with us inside the library, we will happily offer you reader advisory services and curbside.
  • Physical spacing will be required.  We have taken great measures to display signage to assist in this process. No social gatherings at this time.
  • Frequently touched items (newspapers, magazines, toys, etc.) will not be available as it is not possible to quarantine after each touch.
  • When scheduling an appointment and in an effort to maintain distancing and safety for staff and other patrons, we will ask how many family members will accompany you. Furniture and some materials have been rearranged to achieve distancing. Staff will be wearing masks and are also required to maintain physical distance.
  • For safety monitoring, we will ask that patrons who have scheduled an appointment enter through the lower level door and exit out the front door unless the use of the elevator is required.
  • Please continue to use the outside dropbox for returned materials. The CDC recommends a 72-hour quarantine for returned library material.
