The health and safety of our community is our number one priority. We are closely following the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and guidelines from the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the CDC.

Preventative Measures

Windsor-Severance Library

The Windsor-Severance Library is open to the public with the following safety measures in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

  • Patrons are recommended to wear face coverings and to follow social distancing guidelines. Staff are required to wear masks in interior spaces.
  • A reduced number of Children, Teen, and Adult computers are available for use.
  • Programs are held virtually or outside for those age groups not eligible for the vaccine.

Bookmobile

The bookmobile has returned to its normal neighborhood stop schedule to deliver library materials. While visiting the bookmobile please follow these safety guidelines:

  • Patrons are recommended to wear face coverings and to follow social distancing guidelines. Staff are required to wear masks in interior spaces.

Regular Health Maintenance

The Windsor-Severance Library (720 3rd Street) is cleaned seven days a week. This includes, but is not limited to, disinfecting restrooms, tables, and hard surfaces. Hand sanitizer and facial tissues are available throughout the building. This same level of care is provided to the bookmobile after each day on the road.

In addition, we installed a new air filtration system at the Windsor-Severance Library in November 2020 that works to kill bacteria, viruses, and mold pathogens in the air.

Public Health Procedures

If the situation should escalate, we have procedures in place to help maintain public health and safety, yet minimize disruption to library services. Any future library updates will be posted to this page, as well as our Facebook page.
