Our “pandemic library policy” states that our library “shall follow the recommendations of the Bayfield County Health Dept, the WI Dept of Health Services and Federal CDC regarding the continuation of required masking and other COVID safety protocols.” For that reason:

• Masks are highly recommended for all people entering the library.

• People age 2 and older who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 should wear masks in
public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.

We encourage our patrons to continue to be mindful of general safety protocols. Allow safe social distance between yourself and those from outside of your household. Wash/sanitize your hands frequently. Wear a mask if you aren’t feeling well.

At this time, we will also discontinue one-way traffic through the building.

In compliance with the rest of our library system, we will continue to quarantine returned items for 24 hours before handling them.

We thank you for your forbearance as we’ve worked through various versions of safety protocols. We were just trying to keep everyone safe & healthy!

We will continue to offer curbside pick-up for those more comfortable with that delivery method. Please be sure you have confirmed your pick-up appointment by phone, 715-798-3189, or email, cablelibrary@cable.wislib.org
