Northfield Public Library reopened Tuesday, May 26. The health and safety of our staff and patrons is our first priority.
We ask you to:
Stay Home if You are Sick. If you or anyone in your household is sick or has symptoms, do not enter the library.
Wash Your Hands. Frequent handwashing is your first line of defense against infection.
Wear a Mask. Wearing a mask that covers your mouth and nose is required to protect library staff and other patrons. If you don't have a mask, we'll give you one to keep. Fabric masks are offered for free and are reusable.
Limit Your Stay. Toys and many soft furnishings have been removed to facilitate a clean and sanitary environment. Library staff are cleaning and disinfecting at regular intervals throughout the day. During this time, meeting rooms are not available for public use, and library programs will be conducted virtually.
Follow Social Distancing. Keep 6 feet from library staff and other patrons. Follow staff guidance, posted signs, and floor markings to ensure adequate spacing.
