The Dorchester County Library System plans to reopen the Libraries to the public beginning on Tuesday, May 26. There are new regulations and internal operations to ensure the safety of the community and staff, with new hours of operations and cleanliness to adhere to the social distancing concerns.
“The Library has also increased the frequency of cleaning the facility and sanitizing the restrooms.” said Jenn Gleber Branch & PR Manager of the Dorchester County Library Summerville Branch.
The library plans to implement operations during this social distancing time by scheduling additional staff to clean the self-check kiosks and keep the door count. The pandemic has not caused the termination of jobs at the library so the entire staff will be returning but there are restrictions on certain areas and a limited amount of staff and members in the facility at once.
