Lithgow Public Library is working toward safely re-opening the library to the public. They have still been part of our lives with the virtual services and they plan to keep those going.  The city is working on a COVID Code of Conduct that will require staff and visitors to wear masks and use physical distancing. There are steps and goals...here they are...

June 1:  Return Box re-opens. Everything dropped off will be in quarantine for 72 hours before they are checked in. So there will be a delay in your library record display…just FYI. Quarantine is required for the foreseeable future; we apologize for this inconvenience.

June 8: Lithgow Summer Reading Program starts. The in-person programs and services aren't fully operational, Lithgow will still be providing other fun things to keep it fun this summer. Register, track your reading, and find out about our virtual programs online at www.lithgowlibrary.org

June 15: Library members can place requests for items physically on site at Lithgow Library items through MINERVA online catalog or by phone for curbside pickup. They will also have limited printing, photocopying and computing in the Community Meeting Room but the stacks & reading rooms will still be closed. Curbside & computer services will be available 10-6 Monday thu Thursday and 9-5 on Friday.

July 13: Lithgow Library should be back to regular hours, with increasing access! A limited number of people in the building and they will continue curbside service.

The plan is Lithgow will phase in opening the stacks to the public to control high-touch materials and areas to minimizing risk. The plan is to get back to the public library events, open public meeting rooms, increase occupancy, and no longer quarantine items BUT all of that is subject to change as things evolve and we all see what happens.
