  • COVID-19

    What it is? Coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The disease can be spread through close contact (within six feet of another person) or by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching your own mouth, nose, or eyes. (CDC)

    What we’re doing now: The health and safety of our community is our top priority and we have an action plan in place in relation to the coronavirus and its developments. Your Alpha Park Library has been and will continue to actively monitor updates from public health officials regarding the outbreak.

    For the benefit and safety of our patrons, beginning Wednesday, March 18, the Alpha Park Library will be closed to the public until further notice. We will continue to monitor and adjust our schedule according to best practices and new information from local authorities.

    Books that are returned to the book drop during the time of closure will not accrue any late fees. If a patron’s library card expires during the duration of our closure, it will be renewed for 30 days. Online resources are still accessible here on our website.

    Please continue to check our website and Facebook page frequently for periodic updates and other important information. We thank each and every one of our patrons for their patience and understanding.

    We’re also taking precautionary health measures by:
    • Cleaning frequently touched surfaces in the library, such as public computers, countertops, service desks, and door handles
    • Making hand sanitizer, tissues, and disinfectant wipes available to everyone in multiple places throughout the building

    How to keep using the library from afar:
    • Place holds and renew items by using your RSAcat account, which is accessible through the library website, the RSAcat mobile app, or by calling the Circulation Desk at 697-3822 x10
    • Utilize the Axis360 and Libby apps to borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks
    • Conduct online research with World Book Online, OCLC FirstSearch, and Creativebug

    How you can help:
    • If experiencing symptoms, protect yourself and others by avoiding public spaces
    • Avoid contact with people who are sick
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
    • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth
    • Avoid coughing and sneezing into your hands. Instead, do so in the crook of your elbow or a tissue
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
