The Schoolcraft Community Library is committed to the safety of our staff and patrons. Now that the stay-at-home order has been lifted, we are moving into Stage 4 of the Governor’s Michigan Safe Start plan. This means that libraries are legally allowed to offer limited service. We are eager to serve our community and will offer a phased reopening. The library will start accepting returned materials through the book drop on Monday, June 8th and Curbside Service will begin on Monday, June 15th.
All returned materials will be quarantined for 72 hours before they will be added back into our collection for checkout, and all returned materials will be checked in fine-free.
*Please note that MeL and Interlibrary loan services have been suspended by the State with no definite date to resume. Once we receive information about the return of this service, we will communicate that with our patrons via our website and Facebook.
While in Stage 4 of the Michigan Safe Start plan, we will be deep cleaning, adjusting our practices and changing our interior spaces to allow for safe use of the library buildings and equipment.
When our region moves into Stage 5 of the plan, we will be able to provide additional, but still limited access to the building interiors and equipment. We will not resume in-person programming for many months, but Summer Reading will happen online. Watch our website for more information!
