Stuart Public Library Announcement

            Starting Monday October 26th, the Stuart Public Library will implement Phase 3 of reopening.            This is in addition to the current online, curbside and home delivery services that we have been providing, and will continue to provide.  The library will be open to individuals or family groups (children 11 & under must be supervised by a caregiver), by appointment or as available, during the following hours:

Monday               10:00am to 6:00 pm

Tuesday               8:30 am to 4:00 pm

Please call (515) 523-2152 to reserve a time or check availability.

            All patrons will be required to have their temperature checked before entering, and all patrons over the age of 2 years old will be required to wear a mask while inside the library and use the provided hand-sanitizer. The library has a very limited number of masks available to those who do not have their own.  Browsing time will be limited to 30 minutes per individual or family group, and computer access will be limited to 45 minutes.  There will be time between scheduled visits to allow the library staff to thoroughly clean frequently touched surfaces. While browsing the stacks, please place books you touch in the red baskets at the end of the aisles. We ask that you do not place them back on the shelves.

            Please continue to use the outside book drop for returned materials.  All returned materials go through a strict quarantine period before being cleaned and returned to the shelves.  Some materials and services will not be available.  Staff assistance will be limited, as well.

            Thank you for your patience and support during the last several months.  We are working hard to ensure that all library services are implemented in a safe and responsible manner for the protection of both our staff and our community.
