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. People who are not members of the same household are asked to maintain 6 feet of social distance at all times.
  • Scheduled deep cleanings throughout each day.
  • An upgraded air filtration system including the installation of MERV 13 and 15 filters.
  • Contactless services are available, including curbside pickup and home delivery.
  • Returned items are quarantined for 72 hours before going back into circulation.
  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the building.
  • Sneeze guards have been installed at all public service desks.
  • Anyone feeling unwell or in close contact with someone unwell is asked to remain home.
  • A maximum allowance of 45-minute visitation per-person per-day.
  • Building capacity limits in place and enforced.

We’ve expanded our services to include on-site browsing and select services, with limits on capacity and time. Learn more about what’s available here.
