ALEXANDER COUNTY, NC (October 7, 2020) – The Alexander County Library will continue its gradual reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, October 13, the library will allow a limited number of patrons to be inside the library at one time — 10 patrons at the main library, and 5 patrons each at the Bethlehem and Stony Point branch libraries.
“We continue to ask for everyone’s patience as we develop ways that our patrons can visit the library and utilize our services while keeping everyone healthy and safe,” said Laura Crooks, Alexander County Library Director.
Crooks said that appointments will no longer be necessary as of October 13, but patrons will have to call in or ring the doorbell upon arrival. Access is first-come, first-served with the newly-limited number of patrons. Curbside service and online resources will continue to be available.
Library patrons are asked to wear a mask upon entering the building. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the library at all three branches.
There is no public seating available yet for tutoring or extended library visits. There are no meeting spaces available.
In addition, there is no individual computer instruction or intensive computer assistance available at this time. If patrons need assistance while using a library computer, they should bring someone to assist them.
