Hello Prescott Public Library Patrons -
Summer Reading! Fourth of July! Prescott Rodeo! We are a long way from where we were last summer. Last summer COVID-19 restricted use of the library and our usual summer celebrations. This summer, due to COVID-19 vaccinations, things are starting to return to “normal”. We are gradually transitioning our COVID protocol use of the library to a more open policy. The library is heavily used with more than 1,000 people through our doors on most days. All segments of our community use the library, and we want to safely provide service for everyone. In Yavapai County only 37% of those eligible to be vaccinated have been. As the majority of residents have not been vaccinated, you will see some things in the library are slower to transition back to normal.
- We still have reduced capacity in rooms for library programs and for community groups that use the spaces.
- We have reduced numbers of public computers available.
- Some of our programs are still virtual and others offered in a hybrid format.
- We encourage non-vaccinated people who visit the library to wear masks.
We realize some of these actions are inconvenient, but we are striving to provide good library service in a constantly changing health environment. Hopefully, as more people are vaccinated and COVID-19 continues to retreat we will be able to remove these last protective measures. Have an enjoyable summer.
I’ll see you in the library.
