Beginning Tuesday, February 16, Maxwell will again be able to offer patrons the ability to come into the library to browse the collection or to use the computers.
The structure will be the same as it was in the fall:
- You will need an appointment. Call us at 315-672-3661 to set one up.
- Appointments are for 45 minutes, beginning on the hour
- Everyone in your group aged 2 and above will have to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose
The statistic that the Board and Director are watching in deciding whether to remain open is Onondaga County’s 14 day rolling average for the proportion of Covid tests coming back positive. Barring other monkey wrenches, we plan to offer physical access to the library as long as that number stays below 4%. This is the same criterion that the Syracuse libraries and many other suburban libraries are using in making their decisions about reopening and remaining open.
