Staying Safe Together

Thank you for your continued patience during the COVID-19 pandemic!

  • If a bookmobile visitor is uncomfortable boarding for any reason, arrangements will be made by bookmobile staff to assist with questions and item selection outside. Please do not hesitate to let staff know that you are in need of this kind of assistance.
  • Items will no longer be quarantined and all returns will be checked in on site.
  • These guidelines are subject to change at any time.
