Library Service Levels in Response to COVID-19

This page is no longer current.  As of 5-1-21, the library's in-person browsing times are Monday–Friday 10 a.m.–12 p.m. and 2 p.m.–6:00 p.m.  Curbside service remains available 9:00–6:00, Monday–Friday.

These hours are not directly tied to Pulaski County's advisory level on the ISDH color-coded COVID-19 map.  The hours will not change simply because the county changes color, e.g. from Blue to Yellow.  Learn more at https://www.pulaskicounty.lib.in.us/expanded-hours

The original page, including the library's former service levels, continues below.


While the State of Indiana remains in a public health emergency, our levels of service, including in-person services and staffing, will be based on Pulaski County’s status on the ISDH color-coded COVID-19 map: https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/

Our service levels are:

  • Red - Curbside services only. No in-person browsing. Steps will be taken as appropriate to manage rolling staff shortages.
  • Orange - Limited evening timed visits (15 min.) with occupancy limitations for in-person browsing services.
  • Yellow - Limited evening timed (30 min.) with occupancy limitations for in-person browsing services.
  • Blue - Limited morning and evening visits with occupancy limitations for in-person browsing services.

    Our current service level will be listed on the homepage of our website.

    When Pulaski County moves up a level on the ISDH map (e.g. Blue to Yellow), the library will adjust its service level accordingly.  When the library is at Red, it will move to Orange once the county has been at Orange or lower on the ISDH map for two consecutive weeks.  Other movements down in level (e.g. Orange to Yellow) will happen in accordance with the state map's advisory levels.

    Curbside delivery of library materials will be available throughout Blue, Yellow, and Orange service levels as well as Red.  Learn more about curbside delivery here: https://www.pulaskicounty.lib.in.us/curbside-delivery

    Library staff are observing several enhanced health and safety procedures.  Learn more at https://www.pulaskicounty.lib.in.us/covid-19-employee-health-and-safety-procedures

    We have created several guidelines for in-person browsing during the Orange, Yellow, and Blue Levels.  You can see them here: https://www.pulaskicounty.lib.in.us/browsing-guidelines

    Throughout all service levels, we're continuing to offer outdoor Wi-Fi; digital books, movies, magazines, and music; phone reference; virtual programs… and more!  Follow our Facebook page and keep an eye on our website to stay up to date on the latest library services.
