Phased Reopening Plan

Thank you Fairview Free Public Library patrons for your continued patience and support during this extraordinary time. As you miss the library, we miss you as well! We are excited to share with you our plans for reopening the library. 

As you may be aware, the Governor recently permitted libraries the ability to reopen at 25% capacity beginning July 2nd. We have developed a phased reopening plan to provide service in the safest way possible. As we prepare to welcome you back, here is what you can expect: 

  • Visiting: All patrons over the age of 2 will be required to wear face masks and to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Anyone who has a fever, cough, chills or is otherwise not feeling well or who are self-quarantining should not visit the library. All visits are limited to 30 minutes. 
  • Returns: The book drop is open. The book drop will be emptied Monday through Friday. All materials will be quarantined for 72 hours, after which they will be checked in. Overdue fines for Fairview items are waived through September 1, 2020. 
  • Hours of Operation: Beginning Monday, July 6th we will be open with limited hours and services. 

Monday through Thursday we will be open to the public 10am-4:30pm Monday through Thursday we will provide door side pickup service from 11am-7:30pm Friday the library will be open to the public 10am-5pm with door side pickup service available from 11am-4:30pm. 

  • Pick-up of Materials: Beginning on Monday, July 6th you may enter the building to pick up Fairview library materials that you placed on hold. Items may not be requested from other libraries at this time. Short-term browsing will be allowed; we ask that you are mindful of those wishing to use the library and limit your time spent in the library due to the 25% capacity. All visits are limited to 30 minutes. 
  • Self Checkout App: If you visit the library use the meeScan app to check out Fairview items using your phone while practicing social distancing. Secure and easy to use! 
  • Access to Computers: Computers are available for 30 minutes per day. There are a limited number of PCs available to ensure social distancing. Keyboard and mouse must be wiped down after each use. We encourage you to take advantage of our mobile printing service so your library visit is as streamlined as possible. Assistance from staff will be limited and done at a safe distance. 
  • Public Spaces: Seating will be limited to allow for social distancing. At this time, our meeting room will be utilized for the quarantining of materials. All in-person programs and events are suspended. 

Please continue to engage with us virtually through our website, which provides access to online resources, streaming movies, ebooks and audio ebooks 24/7. You can also chat with us there: www.fairviewlibrarynj.org (look for the chat box in the bottom right hand corner). And, of course, you can call us at (201) 943-6244.
