The Dunbarton Public Library moves forward to
Phase Three of our Phased Reopening Plan.
The Dunbarton Public Library has begun to offer limited inside “In and Out” Browsing Services --by 30-minute appointment per Phase Three of our Phased Reopening Plan. Please make your appointment in advance by phone or email. The number of people in the building will be occupancy-limited to three people (two people and the director), OR a parent with a family unit, to allow for a minimum of 6 feet social distancing. A 30-minute appointment may be used for computer use. Only one person per computer.
Please note that there will be no public seating or tables for meeting until further notice.
During Phase Three of our Phased Reopening Plan, and despite the expiration of the state-wide mask mandate, all patrons over the age of 3 will be required to wear a face covering over the nose and the mouth while in the library building. If a patron is unable or unwilling to wear a face covering, or is unable to enter the building, they may use the outside No-Contact Curbside Pickup. This service will be offered to all until further notice.
The 10:00-11:00 AM hour each day will be reserved for seniors and high-risk or immunocompromised library users.
We ask everyone to respect this accommodation.
In order to facilitate a safe environment for staff and the public, the Dunbarton Public Library supports precautions intended to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 per NH DHHS and the CDC.
Programs will remain virtual until further notice.
Library hours for appointments and curbside pick-ups will remain:
Tuesday-Friday, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM
And Saturday, 10:00 AM-2:00 PM
Our green book drop is now open 24/7 for your convenience.
Materials will be quarantined for 72 hours and then checked in.
We are happy to welcome you back. We appreciate your patience and support as we
make employee and community safety our first priority.
It is important to note that our plan is a working document.
Details are fluid and subject to change.

and the Dunbarton Public Library Board of Trustees
