The library will be reopening to the public starting Monday, June 1.
ALL LIBRARY PROGRAMS CANCELED
The Reeseville Public Library is canceling all programs until fall 2020. Thanks for your understanding as we work to protect the health of our patrons and staff.
The safety of our patrons and employees is a priority to the Reeseville Public Library. We are working to stay on top of this evolving COVID-19 situation by following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, WI Department of Health Services, and the Dodge County Health Department.
• Centers for Disease Control & Prevention: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/
• Wisconsin Department of Health Services: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/disease/covid-19.htm
• Dodge County Health Dept.: https://www.co.dodge.wi.gov/government/departments-e-m/human-services-health-department
Patrons and staff are asked to continue following the guidelines from the CDC listed below:
· Cover any coughs and sneezes with your elbow.
Wear a cloth face covering.
· Maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from staff and library patrons whenever possible.
What can you do?
As the State of WI says:
Wash your hands. Cough into your elbow. Stay home if sick.
According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. We encourage any concerned patrons, especially those in high-risk populations, to stay home if they are feeling ill or are simply concerned about potential exposure.
Please keep in mind, as a public space, the Library cannot guarantee a germ-free environment or germ-free physical materials. You need to consider if using library materials, or visiting the Library or other public spaces, is best for you and your family. As a reminder, the Library has many digital services available to you for free; check out our collections at https://www.reeseville.lib.wi.us/
What is the Reeseville Public Library doing?
Library Cleaning: We want you to feel confident visiting the library. Our staff will be disinfecting computer keyboards and mice and disinfecting the library on high touch areas such as counter and table tops, and doorknobs.
Library Materials Cleaning: Collection materials are not disinfected when they are checked-in or as they are browsed or used in-house due to limited resources and supplies. All of our materials will have been quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours and/or sanitized before they are made available to the public, but we cannot guarantee that they will be virus-free. Please take into consideration your needs and comfort level when deciding whether or not to use library materials.
Staff and Patron Hygiene: While supplies last, we are making hand sanitizer and wipes available to staff, plus we are encouraging frequent hand-washing by everyone.
Continued Services: The wifi hours have been extended and Monarch has expanded the overdrive selection. You may also sign up for a library card on line. https://www.monarchcatalog.org/polaris/logon
Next Steps: We are monitoring this developing situation closely, staying up-to-date on info from federal agencies, health organizations, and other experts.
We will continue to communicate any further impacts to the Reeseville Public Library.
Thank you for working with us to keep the library a healthy environment.
