COVID-19 Updates

open for public access

Welcome back! We're excited to see you again. While curbside pick-up & virtual programs still remain available, all ORLA locations are currently open for public access during regular business hours. For your safety & the safety of our staff, some service changes have taken place. Here's what you need to know:

  • Face Masks

    ORLA staff are required to wear masks at all times. When visiting your library, please do your part by wearing a mask for the safety & well-being of others.

  • Virtual & Take-Home Programs

    ORLA has shifted to provide virtual program options and grab-and-go activities for area residents who are unable to attend in-person programs. Learn more about in-person program procedures below.

  • Aggressive Cleaning Measures

    In addition to quarantining returned materials, staff members are continually cleaning high traffic areas & frequently used equipment at all ORLA locations.

  • 30 Minute Visits

    For the foreseeable future, all library visits will be limited to 30 minutes. These time limits are for your protection & to allow our staff to perform enhanced cleaning measures.

  • Reserved High-Risk Hours

    The first & last hours of every day are reserved for our high-risk patrons only. Check with your local branch for specific high-risk hours.

  • Social Distancing Measures

    When visiting your library, we ask that all visitors maintain appropriate distance from others.
