Library Opens for Computer Use

Brown County Library enters “Chapter 2” of reopening plan

Beginning Monday, June 29, 2020, Brown County Library will reopen its buildings for controlled access to computers by appointment only. Reservations are required.
 
Knowing that many people lack home broadband access and that the public library is often the only source of free access to computers and the internet, this next step in the library’s phased reopening plan will benefit jobseekers, those who need to connect with services, and others.
 

 
The library is committed to a safe experience. For the health and safety of visitors using computers:

• Face masks are recommended
• Visitors must practice social distancing of 6 feet
• Visitors must cover their cough or sneeze
• Visitors must obey signage
• Prolonged socializing is not allowed
• Hand sanitizing stations will be available
• Bathrooms and bubblers (drinking fountains) will be closed
• No food or drink is allowed
• Access to restricted library areas is not allowed
 
These expectations will be enforced and failure to comply may result in loss of library privileges.
 
 
 

 
The library is taking extra precautions to protect library visitors, staff, and the community:
• Protective barriers are installed
• Staff provided with PPE including mask, gloves, and face shields
• Frequent disinfecting and/or quarantining of equipment, materials, surfaces and high-touch items
