Opening your Great Falls Public Library

The Great Falls Public Library is committed to protecting the health of our community while continuing to meet the needs of our patrons. Beginning July 7th, masks or other face coverings will be required while inside the library.  Masks will be provided free of charge. Children under the age of 5 are exempt from this requirement, with the understanding that they are accompanied by an adult able to help them comply with social distancing guidelines.

Measures we have taken to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus include:

Installation of physical barriers at all public desks

Hand sanitizing stations in all public areas

Rigorous cleaning and sanitizing protocols for public/work spaces and materials

Staff screening and health protocols

Removal /rearrangement of furniture to ensure social distancing

WiFi signal boost to allow access from the parking lot and front plaza (password: gfpl1234)

72-hour quarantine for all circulating materials
