The Falmouth Public Library is now open to the public for limited browsing and computer use, for the first step of Phase IV of the Governor’s Plan! We ask that all library patrons help to make this a success by limiting their visit to a half hour or less.
For the safety of the staff and library visitors, MASKS MUST BE WORN in the library at all times. Those who have received the vaccine can still be asymptomatic spreaders of the virus. Masks will be required for the protection of library staff and patrons who are still waiting to be vaccinated. If you don’t have a mask, a mask will be provided. For those patrons who want to continue to reduce their exposure, the main library will offer self-service pick-up of reserved items.
Not all library services are available yet. In order to continue the necessary social distancing, public seating is be limited. The large study tables throughout the library have a single chair. To protect our younger visitors, toys and other high touch items have been removed from the Children’s Room. The hope is that families will come to select the materials they are interested in and bring them home.
The library has posted signs indicating the recommended capacity for each room. At this time, the meeting room spaces in the library are not available for booking.
The pandemic has been a challenging experience for everyone. The library staff continue to take guidance from state and local leaders and will be working to protect your safety and that of all others in the building. We are happy to welcome you back and ask for the cooperation of all who use the Falmouth Public Library.
