Letter to Our Patrons Concerning COVID 19
Our Library’s Administration is in constant communication with the City of Cudahy and our Health Department regarding the coronavirus.  We are following their guidelines and recommendations so we can continue serving the public in the safest way possible. 

 The Library is addressing concerns by:
           Implementing additional cleaning and sanitizing measures in the building
           Providing hand gel sanitizers available for patrons and staff
           Requiring staff to follow proper hygiene etiquette
           Continuing to require staff to stay home if they are ill

The Library is Asking YOU for your help too!  Please be aware that even with cleaning we cannot guarantee a germ free environment, and you must decide what is best for you and your family regarding visits to the Library.  If you do decide to visit the Library during this health crisis, please read and follow the procedures on the postings Stop the Spread of Germs,

In addition to being a trusted source for factual information, our library also serves as a safe haven for many individuals and has been designated as a community command center for times of emergencies.  We will do our best to remain open during this health crisis but will also follow the advice of our City’s administration and Health Department. If we have to close the facility we will follow our Emergencies Policy with notification being sent out to the media, posted on our website and on our telephone message.

Thank You.
