Our library system has continuously been doing REALM studies on all of our library materials. They are tested to see how long the virus stays on library materials. After their most recent study, they have asked all libraries to put the quarantine time back to 7 days. Please don’t panic when you see materials that you checked out and returned still on your accounts. We have to let all materials sit in the back room 7 days before they get checked back in. There will be no fines during this quarantine period. This will also affect length of time it will take to get materials to and from inter library loan. Be patient and keep in mind our library is open, others around us are not as fortunate.
