Governor eases library restrictions

Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order that allows libraries to open Monday, June 8, after being closed for COVID-19, subject to guidelines established in previous executive orders.

Staff will return on-site next week to check-in materials that have been returned during the past three months, ready the facility, and prepare for contactless curbside service.

“We know that everyone is excited to return to the library, and so are we! Our staff have worked hard on a phased reopening to the public, and we have appreciated your patience. We have missed seeing all of you and look forward to beginning by providing curbside service in the next few weeks,” Willard Library Director Cathy Lucas said.

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

Please watch here for updates. Anyone with questions may call 269-968-8166, ext. 513, or email infodesk@willardlibrary.org.
