COVID-19 and the Fraser Public Library

An update to our services:

After careful consideration of our current health protocols, the staff at FPL wish to expand access to the library. Effective Monday, April 5 the library will be open regular business hours. We will no longer close the doors for 15 minutes of every hour to clean. Rest assured we will continue to follow our rigorous cleaning schedule, and disinfect desk surfaces and computers between patrons.

After two months of being open at limited capacity, we have discovered our traffic volume does not warrant a 15-minute closure period every hour.

As always masks are required for entry for those who are medically able and curbside service is still available. The library can accommodate 27 patrons at a time. Should we reach capacity, the library doors will be locked until capacity limits permit them to be unlocked.

What Services Are Currently Offered

We are open for curbside pick-up!

To checkout materials please follow these steps:

  • To checkout a book or pick-up a hold, please call the library at (586) 293-2055 between the hours of 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. A librarian will assist you and the library staff will grab your items for you.
  • When you arrive at the library, remain in your car and please call the library again to tell a staff member you’re outside along with your car model.
  • A staff member will roll your items out on a cart. Please allow the staff member to step 6 feet away before getting out and grabbing your materials.
  • Masks must be worn at all times.
  • Any books being brought back to the library must be placed in the book drop before or after the staff member comes outside. We will not accept returns on the cart for safety reasons.

FPL assures patrons that all returned materials are being properly sanitized and quarantined to prevent the spread of the virus.
