A message from Library Director Patti Burnside
At Governor Beshear’s press conference yesterday (5/19/2020) we learned that libraries in Kentucky would be allowed to reopen as early as June 8th. This is very exciting news, and we want to be upfront with our community about what this means - and what it doesn’t mean.
The Governor said that specific guidelines for libraries would be forthcoming. These guidelines plus the “Healthy At Work” requirements will dictate how and when we open. We don’t know exactly what reopening will look like. We do know that it will not be business as usual. There will be new rules, new procedures, and service limitations. Some of these may be temporary, and some may be long-term.
We are eager to welcome you back, and we want to do it safely. This will mean we need to go slowly at first. In consultation with the SCPL Board of Trustees, we have a lot to figure out in the coming weeks and we will try to keep you, our valued patrons, informed along the way. In the meantime, we will continue our curbside pick-up service, virtual programs, and one-on-one technology help sessions via telephone or online screen share programs.
Thank you for your patience and your support as we work together to navigate this new normal.
Mon – Thur: 9 – 9
Fri & Sat: 9 – 6
Sun: 1 – 5
Book Drop Now Open
Materials can now be returned to the library’s book drop on the left side of the building and the Sadieville and Stamping Ground book drops. Curbside service begin on May 11.
