COVID-19 Reopening with Restrictions

St. Ignace Public Library prioritizes your safety and we have adapted our building and procedures to minimize risk of exposure. We have installed plexi-glass sneeze guards at all three contact points at the circulation desk, placed 6-feet distancing markers, minimized closed doors, and limited the available furniture and spaced out our computers. Our bathrooms will be thoroughly cleaned every 2 hours and all high-touch areas will be cleaned after every patron (computers, desks, etc). A hand sanitizer station will be available for public use. We are doing everything we can to ensure your safety and comfort.
