The Carroll County District Library is now open to the public. The library experience
is a little different than normal due to the Covid-19 virus.
Visitors are required to wear a mask for the protection of the staff and fellow patrons. Anyone not able to wear a mask can continue to receive curbside delivery.
At this time, we are requesting that anyone under 16 be accompanied by an adult.
Library hours at the main library are Monday – Friday 9:00 – 7:00, a limit of 10 patrons in the building is set. Malvern Branch hours are 10:00 – 4:00 Monday – Friday, with a limit of 5 patrons at a time. The Bookmobile is running with a limit of one person/family at a time on the bookmobile.
We encourage patrons to call in any requests for materials that can be checked out and ready for pick up.
Each morning from 9:00 – 10:00 (at the main library) is designated for our at-risk population, and from 10:00 – 11:00 each morning at the Malvern Branch.
Computers are available for use by the public on a limited basis. Computer appointments may be made for anyone needing longer than 30 minutes.
Currently there are no meetings or programming.
All programming is being done on our Facebook page. (“Like” us on Facebook!)
As safety is a huge concern, all returned materials are placed in bins and quarantined for 72 hours. After the quarantine, the materials are checked in and cleaned. Materials stay on patron cards during the quarantine period. No fines are being charged during this time. A recent study by Battelle Research showed that the virus that caused Covid-19 is not detectable on five common library materials after three days. Materials tested included the cover of hardcover books (buckram cloth), the cover of softback books, plain paper pages inside a closed book, mylar protective book cover jackets, and plastic DVD cases. Battelle tests found the virus undetectable after one day on the covers of hardback and softback books as well as the DVD case. The virus was undetectable on the paper inside of a book and mylar book jackets after three days.
