COVID-19

Health and Safety at the Clearview Library District

The health and safety of the Clearview Library District 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

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Windsor-Severance Library is closed to the public. Curbside checkouts are available through Library Takeout, and the bookmobile is delivering materials and accepting returns at its neighborhood stops

 In addition to the library’s digital collection, the following services will be offered virtually:

The dropbox at the front of the Windsor-Severance Library and the dropbox at Severance Town Hall are open for returns. For our community and staff safety, materials will be held for a period of time and then wiped down with a disinfectant wipe. At that time, the books will be checked in and removed from your record. There will be no fines or fees applied as a result of additional material processing time.

We will continue to follow state or county guidelines, as they are shared, and are eager to welcome you back to the 3rd Street library when allowed by law or as appropriate. The Board of Trustees will meet at that time in either a regular session or an emergency meeting to reopen the library. We will update you as the situation evolves and when the library reopens.

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.

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.
