Announcement: Georgetown Public Library Open for Browsing By Appointment 2 Days a Week!! Please Read the Following for Rules and Procedures

While we at the Georgetown Public library want to provide all of our patrons with as many services as we can, we cannot in good conscience fully open our doors because we cannot be sure we could do so safely. We are still working things out, but here is what we have planned so far:

To schedule an appointment please call 302-856-7958.

– Appointments will be offered every Monday and Friday. 

– Masks will be required.

– There will be a touch-free temperature check at the door.

– The bathrooms will remain locked. 

– The appointments will be 45 minutes in length, during which time patrons will have the ability to browse for items or to use our computers for printing etc. 

– After every appointment, there will be a 15-minute interval so that the staff has a chance to sanitize all commonly touched surfaces.

– We do not have the staff or ability to sanitize all of our seating after every appointment and so there will be no open seating available. 

– We will not be receiving newspapers until further notice. It is not that we don’t want to keep the public up to date with current affairs, but as we will not have seating available there will be no place for anyone to sit and read a newspaper. 

– Children under 14 will not be allowed to make their own appointments. If you have a child under the age of 14 who needs access to the library for homework supplies etc, then a parent or guardian must make the appointment for them and accompany them.

– There will be no appointments offered from 12:15 PM -1:15 PM. 

– Schools will no longer be allowed to use the library as an after school drop off zone for children.

– If your child usually comes to the library after school to wait for a ride home, please make alternate arrangements as we are not equipped to handle the same amount of children in the building as last school year.

– Curbside pickup will still be running as it has the past months during the lockdown, and it will run with the same rules and procedures as before.

– Our Wi-Fi is still available from the parking lot.

We have never attempted something like this in the past, so this is all still a work in progress. As we work out the kinks of this new system some things may change so be sure to check our Facebook page as well as our website for additional information. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
