Latest COVID-19 Policies and Practices for the Ignacio Community Library

The ICL is doing its best to continue to provide numerous supports to our community every single day from 9 am to 5 pm. Please consider following us on our Facebook page, which will help keep you best updated with our most current announcements!

MATERIALS CHECKOUT: Patrons can now come inside the library and browse for materials! If you are uncomfortable with coming inside for any reason, however, you can still call us at 970-563-9287 and let us know what you would like to check out curbside so we can run them out to you when you get here. (Click HERE to browse our library’s catalog.) Trading between us and other libraries in Colorado has just started back up again, but if you place a hold on an item from somewhere else in the state it may take longer than normal for it to get here.

PRINTING, COPYING, FAXING: The ICL is providing all three services at this time. Prints can be done off of one of our library computers, or sent wirelessly by emailing anything needing to be printed to the email address (Please be aware that wireless documents cannot be printed in color at this time.) Printing is ten cents a page for black and white, fifty cents a page for color. Faxing papers costs ten cents a page locally and one dollar per page for long-distance. Copying is ten cents a page for black and white and fifty cents a page for color.

COMPUTER USE: Patrons can use our computers in-house. We only have a limited number of computers available at a time due to distancing measures being taken, and patrons can only stay on a computer in the library for one session’s total duration (90 minutes). Computers will be cleaned after every use.

NOTARY: For all notary services please call ahead and schedule an appointment – a notary will be present at the library almost every single day of the week from 9 am to 5 pm, but cannot always be guaranteed. Notary fees are $5 per signature needed.

RETURNS: Please feel free to return any materials you have to the ICL, or other libraries that you ordered through the ICL, by placing them in the drive-up bookdrop on the east side of the building. All materials will be cleaned, placed under UV lighting, and then will be left to sit for three days before being re-shelved. (If you return items and they remain on your library account longer than three days please call us and let us know.)

***FACE COVERINGS: Everyone who steps inside the library is asked to wear a face covering (like a mask or handkerchief) until further notice following recommendations made by the San Juan Basin Public Health Department. If you do not have a mask of your own please let us know and we will be happy to provide one for you!

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and support during this intense and ever-changing time!
