Starting Monday, November 2, Chippewa River District Library will welcome the public back inside our Veterans Memorial branch by appointment for computer use. This will be the first time the public is allowed inside the library since we closed our branches on March 16 due to COVID-19 and associated executive orders.
“There are a lot of community members who depend on us for computer access. Some for educational purposes, some to search for employment, and others to stay connected with family and friends,” said Corey Friedrich, library director of Chippewa River District Library System.
In addition to curbside pickup, service will now include technology access:
- 1-hour computer sessions by appointment
- One session per day per person
- Print up to 20 pages for free
Safety is still our top priority so those with appointments will be asked basic health screening questions before entering. They must agree to follow physical distancing guidelines and adhere to the mask mandate. Disposable masks will be available for those who forget theirs. CRDL also requests that teens and adults attend appointments alone; children under the age of 13 may be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Appointments are for computer use only—no browsing or other services will be available.
Appointments can be made by contacting the Veterans Memorial Branch.
