Library takes precautions before reopening

The Brewton Public Library is taking every precaution to protect customers during the pandemic. Closed since March 16, the library has provided many options for its readers. From online resources to now books curbside to go, the library is making every effort to better serve the community, while keeping everyone safe.
For starters, every book the library possesses may be accessed online. Recently, the library started taking book and audio book requests from the community. Each book will be mailed directly to the individual. Requests are taken daily Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. To return the book, the library is asking everyone to drop books in the book drop located by the door.
Once returned all books are stacked in the conference room and properly disinfected over a period of time.
“We are trying to create a safer environment for the readers and employees,” said Mayor Yank Lovelace.
With plans to hopefully open in the coming weeks, glass shields and masks are one of many tactics the library will use to protect all visitors and employees from exposure to the coronavirus. Lovelace said, “We are doing our best to keep the public safe.”
To request a book, call 251-867-4626, or message the library through the Facebook page.
