This is how our library reopened
At the Fitchburg, Wisconsin public library, patrons have historically logged on to their account to request a book/music CD/DVD etc. Staff members normally find the item and place it on your designated shelf inside the building, where you then pick it up at your leisure.
Now, in order to follow coronavirus precautions, the process begins the same way, but now your items are placed in grocery bags labeled with the first three letters of your first and last name. You walk over and pick the bag up and take the items home (I got six DVDs this morning, so expect less blogging in the coming week). No need to show a library card when doing so (because there are times when you just need to trust people).
