Library plans staff training

IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson County Library will welcome staff back to the building next week to complete training and prepare for curbside services.

More information about when these curbside services will begin will be released after the library board’s virtual meeting Tuesday.

This comes after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order Monday that will allow libraries across the state to reopen, with restrictions, beginning June 8.

“We are focused on meeting the needs of our community while mitigating risks of exposure and spread of the virus,” said Megan Buck, library director. “Our goal is to gradually expand safe and sustainable options for the public, beginning with improved curbside services at all branches in the next few weeks.”

The library will remain in compliance with executive orders, OSHA standards and public health guidelines. The health, safety, and comfort of patrons and staff is the highest priority, so patrons should expect some new procedures as the library reopens.

Book drops at the Iron Mountain library will continue to be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
