Our Safety Measures

We are committed to providing a safe environment for all PWPL staff and patrons. In order to do that, the following safety measures are in place…

  • Masks that cover your nose and mouth are required to be worn at all times in the building (except for children under 2)
  • Social distancing markers are in place, both inside and outside the building
  • Regularly scheduled deep cleanings and sanitation of the building
  • An upgraded air filtration system including the installation of Merv-13 Filters
  • Contactless services are available
  • Returned items are quarantined for 96 hours
  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the building
  • Sneeze guards have been installed at all of our service desks
  • Anyone feeling unwell or in close contact with someone unwell is asked to remain home
  • People who are not members of the same household are asked to maintain 6 feet of social distance at all times
