Governor lifts stay-at-home order; eases library restrictions

Yesterday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lifted the stay-at-home order and the order that closed libraries across the state. This new executive order (2020-110) allows libraries to reopen, subject to guidelines established in several executive orders.
Our outside dropbox is OPEN, effective immediately, and patrons are encouraged to return their items, including MeLCat items.

Please be patient with us as we slowly navigate reopening. We are just as excited as you are, but there are many pieces that need to fall into line and it will take some time. Staff will return on-site next week to check-in returned materials, process new materials, ready the building, train on new procedures, and prepare for curbside service.

“We know that our community is excited to return to the library, and so are we! We're working hard to adjust the logistics of our phased reopening with this surprise announcement, and appreciate your patience. We have missed seeing all of you, and look forward to beginning curbside service in the next few weeks,” ADL Director Cynthia Stanczak said.

We will continue to phase in services gradually, consistent with executive orders, OSHA & MIOSHA standards, and public health guidelines. The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our highest priority, so please expect some new procedures when the library reopens.

Please watch our website and Facebook page for updates. More details about how curbside service will work at ADL will be shared in the coming days.

Our county is opening back up, and we are beginning to see more and more patients! This also means that our donated supply of masks to give to visitors is dwindling rapidly. We still need your help! Please consider donating masks to Oaklawn.

Oaklawn staff is onsite at Heritage Commons (13444 Preston Dr, Marshall, MI 49068) and will continue to accept donations Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
