How to Sign Up for a Library Visit
Starting in August, we will be welcoming patrons back into the library. During this next phase of reopening, library visits will be by appointment only and we will schedule 5 patrons for browsing and 2 patrons on the computers at one time. Browsing appointments will be for 20-minute sessions and computer use will be 50 minutes. We will be sanitizing all handled materials and computers between appointments. Please note that toys, games, and activities (coloring pages, crafts, etc.) will not be available.
We will be using the scheduling website Sign Up Genius to track appointments. Patrons have the option of signing up for a time slot themselves through the Sign Up Genius or they can call or email the library to schedule a visit. Please note that Tuesdays from 9:30am to noon have been designated for seniors and immunocompromised patrons. Using Sign Up Genius is easy - just follow these steps: VISIT OUR SIGN UP GENIUS PAGE HERE On the sign up page, you will see a list of dates and times. Each block of time has the option to sign up for either time to browse in the library or use a computer. If space is still available in a time block, you will see the words "Sign Up" and a small box next to it. To select a time slot, simply click the words "sign up" and a check mark will appear in the box. You can select multiple dates and times, but please do not sign up for more than one time slot in a single day. NOTE: Our sign up site will only show you appointment slots for up to ten days in the future. Keep checking back for new appointment times.
After you are done selecting and date(s) and time(s) you wish to visit, click the large "submit and sign up" button at the bottom of the page.
On the next page, double check that the date(s) and times(s) you signed up for are correctly listed. If you want to add or remove dates and times, you can just hit the back button and make changes. If you are signing up more than one person to visit during a time slot (such as a parent with a child), use the drop-down menu in the quantity column to select the number of visitors. This is a very important step as we can only have a limited number of the people in the building at one time and we need to have an accurate count of how many people are signed up for each time slot.
To complete the sign up, enter your name, email address (if you have one), and phone number, then hit "sign up now". If you've entered your email, you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder one day before your scheduled visit.
And that's it - you're all signed up! Need to change or cancel your appointment? At the bottom of the confirmation email, you will see a pencil icon and the word "Edit My Sign Up" - click on this to be brought back to Sign Up Genius where you will have the opportunity to make changes or delete your appointment. You can also call or email the library to make any updates
We look forward to seeing you at the library!
