RPLD Adjusts Hours & Services As State Moves to Phase 4 of Recovery Plan



Robinson Public Library District will resume regular business hours on Monday, June 29, 2020 in conjunction with the progression to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Covid-19 plan.


Each of the district’s four facilities will limit the number of patrons that can be in the library at one time, based on the size of each specific location. It is also required that hand sanitizer, which will be available at the front entrance, be used by visitors. It is also required that face masks are employed. If visitors do not have a face mask, one can be provided by the facility at no charge. It is requested that visitors be respectful of social distancing guidelines that are currently in place.


Patrons that do not want to, or cannot, wear a mask, can still utilize the curbside service, originally enacted during the Phase 3 reopening process. This service will continue until Illinois enters Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Covid-19 plan. As a reminder, those wanting to check out or return materials may call the library for an appointment.


Usage of the Robinson facility’s Newlin room for group activities will be by appointment only and limited to not more than ten persons with proper social distancing guidelines in place.


Patrons that need access to the library’s computers and internet will still need to call the facility ahead of time to schedule an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled on the hour. Patrons will still be limited to forty-five minutes of computer time. Computers are spaced at least six feet apart and disinfected between usages. Likewise, usage of study tables will be limited to forty-five minutes during this current phase. Social distancing guidelines will be in place during usage of both areas.


Printing, copying and faxing services will be available with the usual associated fees in place.
