COVID-19 Information

The Library is Open! In order to help us ensure the health and safety of our patrons and staff, please read and adhere to the following procedures:

Covid Operating Procedures Edited Dec 28 2020

  • All library surfaces and furniture will be wiped down by library staff periodically during the day.
  • All materials returned to the library will be quarantined for at least 72 hours before being checked in and shelved.
  • You are now able to order materials from other libraries and pick them up here. Please note that due to decreased delivery runs, and in compliance with material quarantine rules and regulations,  hold times may be longer.


In the midst of the pandemic, the Clifton Springs Library staff is working  hard to provide quality programming for patrons of all ages. Currently, we are offering virtual programming via YouTube and Facebook, “Take and Make” craft kits that contain all the materials and instructions needed to complete projects at home, and limited in-house, socially distanced programming.  To attend any in-house program, please come wearing a mask and be prepared to wear it for the duration of the program. We also request that you remain at least 6 feet from other patrons, and do not share crafting materials.  Additionally, registration is required as seating is very limited. 

For more information, please reference  The Clifton Springs Library Covid Safety Plan.

The health and safety of our employees, patrons, and other visitors are a top priority. The library will continue to update you on decisions made by the Board of Trustees and the Pioneer Library System regarding library operation while closely monitoring recommendations made by the appropriate federal, state, and local governmental agencies. Any changes will be communicated to the public on our website and Facebook page.
