COVID-19 and the Fraser Public Library

The Fraser Public Library shut down on March 24 in response to Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. For a while, we operated with digital services only and introduced Story Time – LIVE! on our Facebook page to keep the fun of stories going while we were unsure of when we could return.

On June 1 we got the good news that we could open and come back to the library starting June 8. We called an eager staff and returned to our curbside pick-up service June 9, and our community’s response to us reopening did not disappoint!

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.

Our WiFi remains on while the building is closed to the public and can be reached in the parking lot. We ask patrons respect physical distancing while on the library grounds. 

We are offering free black and white printing while the building is closed! Free printing is limited to 5 pages/patron. All other printing services are suspended until further notice.

For patrons not ready to venture out yet, or those who want to take advantage of more services from their library, our online databases are available 24/7. This is a great way to access Ebooks, audiobooks and digital magazines from the comfort of your home. There are also databases to learn more about different cultures, dig deep into your family history and to play fun, educational games with the kids. You can access these and more here: http://www.libcoop.net/menu/fra/alpha.html

All public computers are currently unavailable until further notice.

New DVDs are allowed to be checked out; however, staff will charge your account in the amount of $2/DVD/week to avoid handling cash. All bills will then be paid online via credit/debit card. Please keep in mind, if you checkout 5 or more DVDs, you need to pay your bill before you can checkout more materials from the library.

*Please be aware there is a $0.50 convenience charge to pay online. If you have less than $10 on your account, we recommend waiting for the building to open to pay in cash.
