Beginning Monday, June 15 the Frankfort Community Public Library locations will be open to the public for limited service. The hours will be Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10-2. Tuesday and Thursday will be open from 3-7. The book drops will now be open 24/7.
During this phase of our re-opening the library patrons will be allowed to enter the buildings to browse the collections, select items to take home and to check them out. The seating areas, meeting rooms and Harry’s coffee shop will still be closed. The teen and children’s department will only be open for selecting materials. Toys, games and computers will not be available. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
There will be limited walk-in public computer use. Genealogy collection research is restricted and we request a call ahead reservation.
When coming into the library patrons are encouraged to deposit materials in one of the outside book drops.
At the Main Library there will be a greeter at the entrance. The patron will be offered a mask for their use while in the library. Face mask use is highly encouraged at this time. Patrons will be informed of the limited nature of services being offered and be given any directions they might need. Curbside Service will still be offered at this time.
At the Main Library there will be marked lines where patrons will be queued to check-out their materials so that social distancing guidelines may be observed.
There will be one hour computer sessions available. One-on-one computer lessons will not be available at this time. Personal assistance at computer stations will be limited or not available due to social distancing requirements.
A single genealogy computer and one microfilm station will be available. Pulling court files and on-demand copying of genealogy materials is not available at this time.
Restrictions and limitations are hard, but as we work to protect the staff and our community members, we will get through this.
