GREENVILLE — The Greenville Public Library is starting a step-by-step process to restore services to the public. This will be done in several phases which will depend on government mandates and the containment of the Covid-19 virus.

Beginning Monday, May 11, the library’s phone lines will be open from noon to 4 p.m. for the five-day workweek. The library building itself is still closed to the public until further notice.

We will be able to provide the following by appointment: tax forms, copying/faxing, general answers to questions, help with technical problems done over the phone, and use of a computer for unemployment or job-related issues only.

The Children’s Department is also happy to mail the next reading log and patch for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program to anyone who is ready. Please call for these!

The library is working closely with the Darke County Health Department to determine what services can be provided safely. We are grateful for their guidance in putting our plans into place. At this point, the library has been cleared as a general office environment that requires staff to wear masks, have their temperature taken, and use sanitizer.

Our next phase will be to open the book drop so patrons can return their books and materials. We hope we can do this by June. Once those items are cleaned and ready for check-out we will begin curbside pickup and patrons can again restock their reading and film-watching materials. The exact timeline and procedures for these phases will be advertised in advance.

The library appreciates your patience and understanding during these unprecedented circumstances. Please continue to utilize our digital services such as Libby and Feegal available from our website www.greenville-publiclibrary.org. We look forward to serving the community and to seeing all our patrons again in the future. Phone 937-548-3915.
