Update on Reopening Plan!The Dickinson County Library Board has approved metrics that will determine when the Main and Solomonson branches may move to Phase 5 of the library's Phased Reopening Plan. This move is contingent upon weekly COVID-19 case numbers in Dickinson County; average new case growth must remain at or below .7% or active cases must remain at or below 18% of the total for the branches to move to and remain in Phase 5. If not, the branches will remain in or revert to Phase 4.
"In addition to finding innovative ways to help our patrons, the safety of our community and staff remain our highest priority," said Library Director Megan Buck. "We miss everyone and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is safe to do so!”
Please follow the library on Facebook for updates on the current phase each week, or view the complete Phased Reopening Plan available on our homepage.
Phase 5 will allow patrons to enter the library without an appointment. However, there will be guidelines in place to ensure the health and safety of patrons and staff. These include mandatory masks or face coverings for anyone age 2 and older, limited browsing time, and limited computer time. More detailed information will be released as we get closer to Phase 5.
The library’s North Dickinson Branch will remain in Phase 4 at this time, due to restrictions from the North Dickinson County School.
Regardless of which phase the buildings are in, hours will remain the same for the time being. They are:
Main & Solomonson Branches: Monday-Friday, 10 AM-6 PM; Saturday, 10 AM-1 PM
North Dickinson Branch: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 10 AM-3:30 PM
