The long wait to visit your public library will soon be over!
Starting November 2, we’re opening libraries throughout our library district in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Ferry and Okanogan County. Customers will be able to browse the shelves, access computer stations, skim the newspaper, or pick up a DVD.
Several safety measures will be in place. Customers will be required to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and limit their visit to around thirty minutes. In accordance with state mandated guidelines, libraries in Chelan, Douglas Grant and Okanogan county will have a 25 percent occupancy limit and libraries in Ferry County will operate at 50 percent of regular occupancy.
While we will not be offering in person events, we will continue to offer a wide variety of programs and author events online at ncwlibraries.org. For patrons who prefer minimal contact service, Curbside Pickup will continue to be offered at all branches.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you back into the library!
