The Boulder Junction Public Library is celebrating National Library Week from April 4-10, 2021. We decided the best way to celebrate National Library Week is to announce the library we’ve more open hours inside! Starting the week of April 4th, the library will be open inside on Thursdays from 3 to 6 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm in addition to their existing open hours Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10 am to 1 pm.

Masks or face coverings will still be required for all patrons ages 5 and older inside the building. Patrons must wear their mask over their mouth and nose at all times. The library has free disposable masks available while supplies last. If a patron cannot wear a mask for any reason, the library will be happy to provide curbside service. There will be a capacity limit of 8 people in the library at one time and prolonged socializing or extended stays at the library are not permitted at this time.

Patrons are also still welcome to request Contactless Curbside Pickup of library materials and are asked to remain home or use only curbside library service if they cannot wear a mask, if they are experiencing any COVID-19, cold, or flu symptoms, or if they have been exposed to anyone who has COVID-19 or is awaiting test results.

All library materials must still be returned in the outside book drop on the east side of the building. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Patrons are advised to use library-provided hand sanitizer when entering and leaving the library. The library will also be cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.

The library is quarantining all materials for 24 hours before returning them to circulation, so there may be some delays in clearing items from a library card. If unable to return library materials for any reason, please call the library and ask for a renewal.

The Boulder Junction Public Library cannot guarantee a germ-free environment. With this knowledge, entering the library is done so at one’s own risk. The library may close again based on guidelines from county, state, and national health organizations. If a staff member or patron is sick and has been in the library, the library may need to temporarily close for cleaning and disinfecting.

For questions, please call the library at 715-385-2050 or 715-513-9345.
