Drake Public Library is adding more services to their reopening plan starting Monday July 13.
In addition to Stage 2 services that included curbside pick up, we are continuing Stage 3 computer use by individual appointment. You can schedule one hour for computer use for up to three people (over the age of 15) at a time in the Adult Area. One hour for computer use for one person (child, under the age of 18 but over the age of 9, per the library’s Unattended Child Policy) at a time in the Children’s Area.
Starting Monday July 13
Part B of Stage 3 includes browsing by individual appointment. You can schedule one hour of browsing for up to three people (for both the adult area and the children’s area). Family groups will be asked to send one person (see Unattended Child Policy) to choose materials or they have to reserve more than one appointment slot during that hour. You must ask for assistance before browsing the non-fiction section on the top floor and you must schedule browsing appointments for each department (adult collection and children’s collection) that you want to visit.
Part C of Stage 3 includes limited availability of our Conference Room and Maker Space. There is a limit of up to and no more than 6 people for scheduled meetings in the Maker Space and 4 people in the Conference Room. The Study Room and public seating are off limits.
Masks are required in the library and we will have hand sanitizer available. Bathrooms will not be open to the public. All materials need to be returned through the Bookdrop and won’t be accepted at the circulation desks. The lower level entrance/exit and elevator will be used by all patrons with appointments. Cleaning will be done during the breaks between time slots. FAX/Scan with in-library printed paper only or put your form(s) in the bookdrop (in an envelope with contact information) for a future appointment.
We are working hard to provide services to our community while keeping our staff and our patrons as safe as possible and we appreciate your support. Please contact library staff at 641-856-6676 to schedule your appointment.
