Hazel Mackin Community Library Events

for the week of June 1st, 2020

Big announcement-the library plans to reopen June 15th

With that said, there are many changes that you need to know about. The hours will be reduced-Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays 10-2 pm and Thursdays 2-6 pm.  We will have a limited number of people in the building, restrooms will be closed, toys, games and puzzles will not be out during this phase. If you are able, please limit the number of people in your family that you bring to the library at this time. 

We will have computers available, but not as many as typical because of the social distancing piece.  The keyboards have been replaced with washable ones, so please let a staff member know when you are done with the computer.

We hope this won’t last for months, but we are doing everything we can to keep our staff and patrons safe. We will follow the St. Croix County Guidelines – stay home if you are sick, wash your hands with soap and water-we will have hand sanitizer available, wear a mask if you are medically able, practice physical and social distancing.

Please know, everything is subject to change depending on COVID cases in the County, staff health and people’s ability to follow these guidelines.  If we receive more guidelines from the DPI, that could also put more changes in reopening than what I have shared above.

We will continue to offer non-contact curbside pickup summer.  Please go to our website www.robertspubliclibrary.org for instructions and a video to watch for how to put local items on hold.  Courier still isn’t running and we don’t have a date yet as to when it will start up again.

Coffee Chats will be on Fridays, June 12th and 26th, 10 am. Via Zoom.  Fill up your own mug and join us for social hour.  Our group met every Friday at the library and played games and caught up about life while enjoying coffee and cookies.  Please email the library at hmcl@robertspubliclibrary.org to get the Zoom meeting information.

Summer Reading will be online this year.  This will also start on June 15th.  Exciting news is that we will have an app to use for it so all of your reading can just be added in on the app or online.  Please check the library website for more information.  Our app is not live yet, we are finishing the details this week:)

We are still planning virtual programming for the summer.  More details will be shared as soon as possible.
