On March 9th, Nicholas P. Sims Library is reopening the doors to the community. The Library staff will take every precaution to clean frequently used surfaces appropriately.  Please understand that every item will not be cleaned after each patron visit; if you are sick or feeling you are getting ill, we ask that you please stay home.

Currently, older adults and persons with underlying health conditions are considered to be at increased risk of severe illness and complications from COVID-19. Examples of underlying health conditions include heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, people with weakened immune systems, and people who are pregnant. The CDC recommends that people in high-risk groups consult with their healthcare provider about entering public facilities.  If you feel you are in this category please consider utilizing Homebound or Curbside Service.

The Library staff has posted CDC guidelines in the appropriate entrances and restrooms.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we navigate through this pandemic.



The Library plans to resume open hours effective Tuesday, March 9, 2020.  The hours of operation are as follows:


Tuesday - Friday           10:00 am - 7:00 pm


 Saturday                    10:00 am – 2:00 pm


Among the changes patrons will notice when the doors open include:

  • Masks are encouraged for anyone over the age of 2

  • Social distancing will be encouraged

  • Patrons who are sick are asked not to enter

  • Reminder to wash hands and use sanitizer

Please keep in mind the CDC recommendations on how to keep yourself and others healthy:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
