The safety of our patrons and employees is a priority to The Lester Public Library of Rome. We are working to stay on top of this evolving COVID-19 situation by following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and the WI Department of Health Services. Our current plan is to: 1) prioritize the safety and health of our staff and patrons; 2) continue serving your library needs for the time being; 3) plan ahead for changing circumstances

What can you do?
Wash your hands. Cough into your elbow. Stay home if sick.
According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. We encourage any concerned patrons, especially those in high-risk populations, to stay home if they are feeling ill or are simply concerned about potential exposure.
Please keep in mind, as a public space, the Library cannot guarantee a germ-free environment or germ-free physical materials. You need to consider if using library materials, or visiting the Library or other public spaces, is best for you and your family.
Thank you for working with us to keep Lester Public Library of Rome a healthy environment.
