We are happy to welcome you back to the library. At this time we’re offering limited services to reduce contact and close interactions to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

What to Expect when You Visit the Library

  • Face coverings are required for everyone over the age of two while inside the building.
    • We have a limited number of masks available. (Just ask for one!)
    • If you are unable to wear a mask for health reasons, please call the library prior to your visit so we can make the appropriate accommodations.
  • Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • We have a limited number of seating areas available. Please limit your stay to one hour or less.
  • Drinking fountains are unavailable.
  • Building occupancy is limited. Staff will monitor capacity.


  • Items must be checked out at the main circulation desk on the upper floor.
  • Books may be requested from other PrairieCat libraries, but expect to wait longer than normal for holds to be fulfilled.
  • When it’s time to return your books, please use the book drop. Staff cannot accept items from patrons.
  • All returned materials will be quarantined for 7 days, so don’t be alarmed if they are not checked in right away. When materials are checked in, they will be backdated, so no fines will accrue.

Computers, Printing & Faxing

  • Computer usage is limited to one hour a day. 
  • To use a computer, please register at the circulation desk.
  • In order to maintain social distancing, staff is unable to assist with the computers, printing and faxing.
