We are pleased to announce that the Ferguson Public Library is now open to the public! We have made several changes to our services and implemented new guidelines to help keep our staff and you, our patrons, healthy during this pandemic.
- If you are feeling unwell, please stay home!
- Masks must be worn in the building at all times by patrons and staff.
- A maximum of 18 patrons inside at a time. Please consider using our curbside service to pick up library materials instead of coming inside.
- Short visits only, in and out. Computer usage will be limited to 15 minutes, with no help available from library staff.
- Copying and faxing will still be available.
- When browsing, please put unwanted items in the marked baskets. Do not put them back on the shelf.
- Return all library materials to the book drop. No library materials may be returned inside.
- Temporary library hours:
- Monday-Friday: 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
- Saturday: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
- Seniors and high risk patrons only: Monday-Saturday, 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Curbside service to pick up requested library materials will still be offered while we are open. We can also print documents, make copies, and fax papers for you with our Mobile Print service if you would prefer to not come inside. Here are the guidelines:
- For library materials, you can make requests online through our catalog or by calling the library. Please note that library materials coming from other libraries will take a few days to arrive.
- When you have received a notification saying that your library materials are ready, come to the library and park in one of the designated curbside parking spots and follow the directions on the sign to let us know you are here at the library to pick up your library materials. A staff member will bring them out to you and put them in the trunk of your car. Please have your library card or ID ready
- For mobile printing, please email anything you need printed or faxed to email@example.com.
- If you need something faxed, please include a statement in your email saying you give us permission to fax the document for you.
- To pick up prints, please park in one of the designated curbside parking spots and follow the directions on the sign to let us know you are here at the library to pick your prints. A staff member will bring them out to you and put them in the trunk of your car.
