Library tries to navigate COVID

Hoopeston Public Library is working hard to stay open and keep patrons and staff safe during the area’s surge in COVID-19 cases.

In an effort to do so, some safety guidelines will now be enforced for visitors to the building.

Per the federal, state and county mandates, masks will be required for all persons in the building over the age of 2.

Computers, faxing and copy services are still available to the public. Computer use will be limited to 30 minutes.

Patrons are encouraged to make their visits as brief as possible to help limit contact with others. Social distancing should be observed at all times.

If COVID-19 conditions in the area worsen, the library will act to further protect patrons and staff.
