Geauga County Public Library Updating Services

Geauga County – June 2, 2021 – After a long and difficult year in which our staff and community have composed themselves with patience and grace, we write with an update to our services. As with all other service decisions, we continue to follow guidelines laid out by local, state, and federal officials.

Starting June 2, members of the community who are vaccinated are not required to wear a mask in our buildings. We ask that staff and patrons continue to practice social distancing. Minors will no longer need to be accompanied by an adult. The pre-pandemic number of public computers will be available, and the 2-hour time limit will remain in place. Study rooms will return to pre-pandemic procedures. Starting June 16, meeting rooms will be available for patrons, with reservations opening on June 7. We will continue to offer curbside pickups at all our Branches, and drive-up windows will remain open at the Middlefield and Bainbridge Branches.

Digital offerings like Reference Assistance, Print/Scan/Fax, Ecards, and BookMatch remain available. In addition to continued virtual programs, we also look forward to bringing back in-person programs, which will start in July.
