After having the building closed to the public for four months, the Fraser Public Library is open for patrons to come in who need to utilize its electronic services.
Starting today, Aug. 3, patrons can call the library to make a computer reservation 24 hours in advance. Reservation periods are a max of 45 minutes and are reserved for patrons needing to print, scan, copy, or fax in addition to using the computer. Reservation times start at 10:30 a.m. and go until 6:30 p.m. Mon.–Thurs. and 3:30 p.m. Fri.–Sat. To ensure we have downtime between reservations to disinfect, the 45 minute reservation time starts at half past the hour, not when the patron arrives to the library.
Reservations can also be made for patrons who need a library card application, their card renewed, or for children library card applications.
Patrons who wish to take advantage of this service need do the following:
- Call the library at (586) 293-2055 24 hours in advance to make a reservation.
- When they arrive for their scheduled time, we ask them to call the library so we can verify their name and let them in at the front door.
- Patrons are allowed to bring no more than one additional person with them if needed, but encouraged to come alone if possible.
- Guest passes for computers are available.
At this time, browsing through the library and loitering are not permitted. Additionally, pursuant to Executive Order 147, masks are required to enter the building if medically able. We kindly ask anyone presenting symptoms of COVID-19 to refrain from entering the building.
Curbside service is still available for patrons wanting to pick up holds or additional materials over the phone.
The transition to opening the library for electronic access is stage 4 of the library re-opening policy. For additional information on our re-opening, please read the full policy found on our website.
