Libraries Offer Options for Vulnerable Individuals

With the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department COVID-19 Risk Dial now at “Orange,” indicating a high risk of the virus spreading, Lincoln City Libraries (LCL) reminds users that safe options for service are available to individuals who are more vulnerable to illness and to those who care for them.

Safe service options include:

  • Materials may be reserved online. For assistance with online reservations, call your branch library.
  • On Fridays from 10 to 11 a.m., all library locations are reserved for patrons especially vulnerable to illness. In addition to masks and distancing, additional safety measures, such as staff temperature checks are employed.
  • Front-door pickup of reserved materials can be arranged by calling your preferred branch.
  • Call LCL at 402-441-8500 to register to have materials mailed to you.

All library locations resumed regular walk-in service hours June 22. COVID-19 protocols include the following:

  • Face coverings and distancing are strongly encouraged. Effective July 20, face coverings are required in conformity with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department’s Directed Health Measure.
  • Visits will be limited to one hour with building capacity controls in place. Effective July 15, you may be able to “renew” your library visit for one extra hour if the building’s capacity has not been reached.
  • Computer sessions will be limited to one per day.
  • Study and meeting rooms are not available.
  • Seating is limited due to temporary removal of chairs to promote distancing.
  • Newspapers may not be available at all locations.
  • Donated materials will not be accepted.
