The Plymouth Public Library is committed to a safe reopening. Our next phase will expand on services we have been offering. PPL encourages the public to wear masks and wash their hands throughout all upcoming phases.
Monday, June 1st will bring expanded services by appointment only – 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m – by calling (574) 936-2324 ext. 1.
Curbside Holds Pickup will continue between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday (10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday). Computer use can be scheduled by appointment, and will take place in the Laramore Meeting Rooms located at the north end of the building. Please enter and exit through the north entrance when visiting for computer use. There will be 6 laptops available, with a time limit of 30 minutes per laptop. No printing and no hands-on help will take place at this time.
At the Adult Circulation desk – located at the south end of the building – fax and notary services, along with new card registration and card renewals will also be available via appointment. No browsing or checkouts will take place at this time. Please enter and exit through the south entrance when arriving for your pre-scheduled appointment.
Monday, June 8th will bring a limited opening of the building to the public, with restrictions.
Patrons are encouraged to “grab and go”, and limit their browsing of materials to 30 minutes. PPL will permit a limited number of people inside the building, with limited access to certain areas. The Quiet Room, Fireplace Room, and children’s play areas will remain closed to the public. If possible, please visit without extra family members. Limited computers will be available in the Computer Lab, again with a time limit of 30 minutes. Tables and chairs have been removed throughout the building. Curbside Holds Pickup will also continue.
The Plymouth Public Library is excited to resume services and to once again see and serve the public. We ask that the public help by following guidelines that have been set in place, and practicing proper social distancing when visiting. All steps, precautions, and limitations such as mask wearing and hand washing, are being taken in the interest of not only the public health, but the health of library staff as well.
“Things will look a little different as we take initial steps and precautions to keep our patrons and staff safe,” said Library Director Heather Barron. “Library staff will be wearing masks to protect the public and one another. We ask that you wear a mask if possible to help protect your neighbors and your library staff.”
See you at the library!
