Updated Statement from The Gilsum Public Library
As you may know, The Governor has lifted the mask mandate put into effect in November. Although he has lifted the mask mandate, he has also left it up to individual communities and businesses to continue the requirement if they feel the need.
We always consider the safety and security of our Library family our highest priority. Considering the continuing coronavirus concerns, we would like to share the steps the Gilsum Public Library will extend to help keep our community safe and healthy.
The Gilsum Public Library will continue to require masks be worn at all times by anyone in the building unless under the age of 5 or for whom wearing a mask is medically a challenge. We will have masks on hand should you need one. We also have hand sanitizer available.
Anyone uncomfortable with visiting in person or who is unable or unwilling to wear a mask, but wishing specific books, can contact the Library at 352-4826 and leave a message. You may also email email@example.com. A member of the Library will get back to you with instructions on picking up books. Returns can still be made at the outside depository.
You may also use our downloadable book consortium available to card holders at http://nh.lib.overdrive.com
Thank you for supporting us at a crucial time and thank you for your part in keeping our community safe and healthy!
