Library buildings are closed until further notice as we prepare to follow Minnesota Department of Health guidance on social distancing. We are working on reopening in phases while making sure safety protocols are in place as well as the supplies to maintain them. We are offering limited services, including curbside pick up of requested items at all libraries, and are working to add others. Book drops are open for returning materials. Please check back for updates.

Thank you for your patience during these trying times.

 

At the Board meeting last evening for Pioneerland Library System, the following was approved :

Exec/Finance Committee passed a motion stating PLS staff are not allowed to be in libraries working on other projects etc. at this time. Library administration will notify us when we are allowed to return to the library. This is based on concern for the health and safety of staff as well as concerns regarding liability.

Currently, the library will be closed through the end of March. However, this date is fluid and may be extended due to existing conditions.

The book drop. Do not attempt to return your materials to the library at this time. Due dates have been extended to April 8th and they will not incur any fines. When we do reopen all materials returned will be backdated to that date.

I will continue to share links that other librarians and companies are providing to us to help you keep your children educated and entertained

These are trying times for all. Thank you for your understanding. Keep reading! Remember ebooks are available on Overdrive and Libby. All you need is your library card to get an account.

If you do have any serious questions, please email me at vicki.bartz@pioneerland.lib.mn.us

Stay safe!
