Starting August 1, the Library will resume hosting in-person programs! We are still following COVID-19 safety guidelines in order to keep our staff and patrons safe. Guidelines in place are:


  • Masks are requested and appreciated as the CDC recommends unvaccinated individuals to wear a mask in public. Please respect patrons, visitors, and staff by wearing a mask when inside the JKPL.  
  • We have three rooms available for patrons to use for groups of up to 20 people (social distancing may not feasible). 
  • Curbside service continues for those that prefer it.
  • We encourage everyone to wash or sanitize their hands upon entering the library.
  • Reusable bags are provided upon entry for patrons to use to hold their library materials.
  • Returned / handled items will be quarantined for a minimum of 24 hours before being checked in and shelved.
  • Events may be in-person, virtual, or a hybrid of both. In-person events do have capacity restrictions in place and registration will be required for all in-person events.
