School Year 2020-2021 and the Windham Public Library
As we think about the start of the school year, library staff wish to explain what impact our COVID-19 changes will have on the
in-person visits of students.
In the past, many students would visit the library after school to use computers, study, change for
after-school activities, or to wait for sports programs or rides. The library’s current COVID-19 guidelines restrict each person’s visit to 30 minutes with a maximum of 15 people in our building at a time. All seating and study areas have been removed to encourage visitors not to linger and to limit the potential for exposure to contaminates.
Unfortunately, this leads us to an inability to accommodate student visits as we have in the past. To restrict access is disappointing but necessary for the health and safety of all community members. We will work with teachers, school librarians, and parents to get students the resources they need within our new guidelines.
If you have concerns, please reach out to Jen Alvino, Library Director.
