Long-time no see! Starting July 6th, Nebraska Talking Book and Braille Service will begin allowing patrons entrance to our library by appointment. Since the pandemic is still very much a reality, our staff is still socially distancing and we are therefore continuing to have only one Readers Advisor at the desk at a time.
If you are going to be in downtown Lincoln and would like to come pick-up your books in person, give us a call ahead of time and we will get your order ready to go. When you come in at your appointed time, we will have a table to the left of the main doors for pick-ups and drop-offs so that we can all social distance, and so that our staff can sanitize the space for everyone’s safety!
Additionally, we would all appreciate the use of masks and hand sanitizer when you come in and that you remain six feet apart from your friendly librarian! Bathrooms and drinking fountains will not be open to our guests at this time, so please plan accordingly. We ask that you not loiter after your order pick-up to provide the space we need to sanitize after your visit. Lastly, please be aware that if you are more than fifteen-minutes late for your scheduled appointment, you will have to reschedule.
We look forward to seeing your friendly faces and providing you with books. Thank you for your patience as we get through this difficult time.
