  • Limited Reopening Plan

    *Updated 7/28/2020*

    Dear Pease Public Library Community,
    I am pleased to announce that we are going to offer a limited reopening to the public beginning on Monday, August 3. For those who prefer it, we will continue to offer curbside services.

    Our hours will be:
    Monday: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    Wednesday: 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM
    Friday: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    Our phone hours will now be Monday-Friday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

    We will be limiting the number of patrons in the building to 15 at one time. Duration of visits will be limited to one hour, one visit per day. Masks will be required while visiting. Our meeting room facilities will remain closed until further notice.
     
    What We Are Doing to Keep You Safe

     
    • We are requiring that all of our staff and visitors wear face masks while in the building. If you do not have a face mask upon arrival, we can provide one for you.
    • We will be quarantining all of our returned materials for at least 72 hours (we have suspended all fines).  
    • We are providing hand sanitizer to all patrons upon entering the building and will have it available at all circulation desks.
    • Our public computers have been moved to allow for appropriate social distancing.

    Thank you for your patience as this strange period in history unfolds. We look forward to welcoming you back into the library!

    Diane Lynch, Pease Public Library Director

  • NH Room Pandemic Policy

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, use of the NH Room has been altered to best protect the materials, staff, and patrons.
     
    • The NH Room may only be used by appointment only for local history research.
    • Appointments will be limited to 1 hour and cannot exceed the maximum occupancy of 2 people.
    • Anyone who wishes to use the NH Room must wash their hands before entering. Hand sanitizer is not permitted in this room as sanitizer residue on hands has been shown to damage archival materials.
    • No sanitizing fogs or aerosols may be sprayed in the air of the NH Room. These will cause irreparable damage to the archival materials in this space.

    Please contact us at mail@peasepubliclibrary.org or at 536-2616 for more information or to setup an appointment.

Dear Pease Public Library Patrons,

Due to the paving project currently expected to take place the week of September 14th on Highland Street and on a portion of Russell Street, there may be restricted access to our parking lot. We intend to be open to the public and to continue to provide exterior/ curbside service throughout the roadwork. You may have to park in another location or walk to us at some point during this time, however. We apologize for this inconvenience! Feel free to call us for up to the minute reports of conditions before you leave, 603-536-2616.

Sincerely,
Diane Lynch, Pease Public Library Director
