LeClaire Library has taken actions to operate safely during this pandemic, based on recommendations from the CDC and the American Library Association.

We are asking people to keep a physical distance of six feet from other patrons. Wearing masks is encouraged. Hand sanitizer is provided.

Our check-out desk has a Plexiglas barrier installed, and we use a no-contact method of checking out.

Our computers are separated by 6 feet or more and are cleaned after every use. We provide hand sanitizer for patrons who are using the computers.

All returned items are quarantined for at least 72 hours before being checked in, which is longer than the virus is thought to persist on cardboard or plastic surfaces. The items will remain on your record for these three days, but they will be backdated when checked in and any fines will be waived.

Magazines must be checked out and not read in the library. Disposable gloves are provided for reading the newspapers.

Temporarily we will be closing at 7pm instead of 8pm, Monday through Thursday.
