The Main and Solomonson branches of the Dickinson County Library are preparing to move to Phase 5 of their reopening plan later this month provided Dickinson County continues to see a downward trend in new and active COVID-19 cases.
Phase 5 allows patrons to come into the building without an appointment. However, face coverings will be required, social distancing guidelines will be enforced, and services and hours will continue to be limited. More detailed information will be released as we move closer to Phase 5.
The North Dickinson Branch, located inside the North Dickinson County School, will comply with additional location restrictions and remain in Phase 4 at this time.
Hours at the Main Branch will remain Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM and Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM through December 31, 2020.
Please see our website at www.dcl-lib.org for more about the library’s Phased Reopening Plan.
Expanded Hours for Curbside Pickups, Limited Appointments, and the Book Drop at the Main Branch!
We are now offering curbside pickups and limited appointments inside the building Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM, including the hours of 1 PM to 3 PM, which were previously not available.
We have also added Saturday hours, from 10 AM to 1 PM, for curbside pickups and limited appointments inside the building.
Patrons have two options to initiate a curbside pickup:
Log in to your library account online and place holds for items, such as books or DVDS, that you want. When the items become available, we will call you to set up a pickup time.
Call us at 906-774-1218 and give us the titles you’re looking for. If the items are available in-house, we will locate them and set up a pickup time for you. If they are not immediately available, we will call you when they are here to set up a pickup time.
Limited appointments inside the building are for the following activities: using a computer, registering for or renewing a library card, paying a bill for a lost or damaged item, using the copy machine, using the microfilm machine, or viewing reference materials that cannot leave the building. Patrons must wear a face covering at all times while inside the building.
We’re also happy to announce that the book drop at the Main Branch will now be open overnight during the week. We will open the book drop about 10 AM on Monday and lock it at 1 PM on Saturday. It will remain closed for the remainder of the weekend.
And finally, the Main Branch is now offering appointments to read local and regional newspapers. Please note, this is an “at-your-own-risk” service, as library staff are unable to sanitize newspapers or quarantine them between users. Gloves are available for those who wish to use them. As with all other appointments inside the building, face coverings are required.
Please keep checking our website at and our Facebook page for more updates as they happen. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to move forward with our reopening plan!
The Solomonson Branch continues to offer curbside services and limited appointments inside the building Monday through Friday from 10 AM-1 PM & 3 PM-6 PM. Starting Tuesday, September 8, the North Dickinson Branch's hours will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10 AM-3:30 PM.
