The Ilsley Public Library is now open for browsing of new materials and computer access Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, with an additional evening shift on Wednesday from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Pickup Service will continue uninterrupted, with the sole difference that pickup will take place inside, at the circulation desk, instead of in the garden.

Now, when you come to pick up your library materials, you can also browse new adult and teen materials in the library lobby, and new youth materials in the library reference room (the adjacent room with the large bay windows). There are two computers for public access in the reference room. 

To keep library patrons and staff safe, the rest of the library remains closed to the public for the time being. Only eight patrons are allowed inside the library at a time, and a library staff member will be facilitating entry at the side door. It is possible there might be a short wait to enter the library. Masks are required for entry, and social distancing is required once inside. If you are not comfortable entering the library, you can call ahead to arrange to pick up your materials outside.

How else can you help to keep the library safe and comfortable? 

    • Please do not visit the library if you have flu-like symptoms.
    • We have hand sanitizer for your use by the side door. 
    • Bring your library card so you can use our self-checkout. 
    • Try to keep your time in the library under twenty minutes.
    • Try to keep computer use to short, simple applications; because we need to maintain social distance, library staff will not be able to provide computer assistance as usual. 
    • Plan ahead so you can limit restroom use in the library. 
    • Remember that the library is not currently open as a space to gather and socialize.
