The global spread of COVID-19 is a rapidly-evolving situation. The Macksville City Library wants to inform our patrons and staff about preventative measures the Library is taking in response. Check this page for any potential changes to Library programs and services.
The health and safety of our patrons and staff are a top priority. In light of the recent COVID-19 developments, the Macksville City Library has made the following determinations about library services. These initiatives are effective until further notice.
- We will be open limited hours:
- 1:00-4:00pm on Mondays & Wednesdays
- 10:00am -12 noon on Saturdays.
- Our Wi-Fi will still be available, accessible outside the library.
- Computer use will be limited to one 30 min. session per day, unless for work or online study.
- Books, videos, magazines, and audiobooks are available for checkout, but all returned items will be held for 8 days before re-circulation.
- High touch areas such as door handles and computer stations will be cleaned throughout the day by staff.
- Hand sanitizer pumps will be available and use encouraged upon entering the library.
- Games, puzzles and toys will not be available for use at the library.
- We encourage staff and patrons to also practice social distancing (a recommended distance of about 6 feet) while enjoying the library.
If you are sick or staying home, you can still use the library!
Our website, Macksvillelibrary.com has free eBooks, audiobooks, online learning, Macksville history, local links, research and more.
Stay up-to-date with a trusted source and factual information.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] will provide information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance.
Also, during this school closure the Stafford County Health Department has recommended that if you traveled out of state during spring break you need to contact them at 620-549-3504 to answer a health survey.
The health department only has two lines and two staff, so if the line is busy keep trying.
Please comply with this recommendation to minimize the risk to the county.
In the meantime, while you may be home from work or school, it’s a perfect time to do some Pre-Spring Cleaning! We have updated our overdue books list, and we will be contacting patrons who have overdue books soon. We really miss our books! And, we need to know which books may be “lost forever” and need to be replaced. Please check around the house, car, under the beds, etc.. All overdue books returned before notices are sent get a (tasty) token of our appreciation. (Doesn’t that beat a late fee!)
