The Library is Opening for Browsing!
Starting on Tuesday, September 1, the Lunenburg Library will be open for limited browsing by appointment only. Patrons will be able to reserve one of a limited number of appointments for 30 minutes of browsing in the library building. Reservations can be made through the library website’s calendar at lunenburglibrary.org.
There will be two blocks of appointments for up to 10 visitors each day Mondays through Thursdays and on Saturdays. The first set of appointments each day is reserved for high-risk and vulnerable patrons.
Monday 6-6:30 pm
Tuesday 2-2:30 pm
Wednesday 10-10:30 am
Thursday 2-2:30 pm
Saturday 10-10:30 am
Cleaning of high touch surfaces will be done between each appointment group. Admittance to the building will be by appointment only. Face masks that cover both your nose and mouth are required for entrance into the building, and the staff are happy to provide curbside service to those who cannot wear masks. Curbside pickup appointments are available from 10 am until close Mondays through Thursdays and on Saturdays, except during the hours of browsing appointments.
In addition to browsing our collections, visitors can use a public computer, the copier, or fax machine. Exact change is requested for copies and faxes. There is a charge of $0.10 per page for copies, and a charge of $1.00 per page for faxes.
The children and teen areas will be accessible for browsing; however, toys, games and learning manipulatives have been put into storage. We encourage patrons to browse with their eyes and limit contact with materials as much as possible, as we are required to quarantine material that has been handled by patrons. To facilitate with this recommendation, we have created several new displays of materials and book bundles on popular topics. Additionally, we have knowledgeable staff ready to help you find anything you need!
Call us at 978-582-4140 to make an appointment to pick up your materials on reserve, or if you have questions about in-library visits. You can also call us to book a browsing appointment.
