The Great Falls Public Library has been working hard to be able to open

We have installed plexiglass shields at each of the public desks. All
staff will be wearing masks when working with the public. We have
re-arranged furniture and public computers to ensure social distancing.
We have developed cleaning protocols and provided training to staff.

Hand sanitizing stations are installed throughout the Library. Patrons
are encouraged to practice good hygiene by covering coughs/sneezes and
washing hands frequently.

We encourage patrons to wear masks but they are not required.

We ask that the public not come to the Library if they are sick.

Great Falls Public Library encourages patrons to call or email us with
any questions, and to follow us on social media for updates.

UPDATE: April 2020

The Great Falls Public Library BUILDING  is  currently CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.
