The Library Has Resumed Regular Hours!

I have exciting news!! The Frankfort City Library will be resuming normal hours starting Tuesday September 8th! We will no longer be requiring an appointment, however we will still be limiting the number of patrons allowed in the building to 5 at a time. We are also still requesting that you wear masks while in the library. Computer use will continue to be for essential business only and we are asking that people do not congregate at the library. We are excited to move closer to getting back to normal! Since it has been awhile, please see our hours below. I hope to see you all soon!

Monday: 1 pm to 5 pm
Tuesday: 9 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 5 pm

Library Update

I just wanted to give you all a quick update about what’s happening here at the library! We are still open on an appointment basis. I can usually accept walk-ins as long as we stay under the limit of 5 people at a time. I would still recommend giving me a call first, just to check.   We are asking that people please wear a mask while in the library, in order to protect any other patrons. Tiffany will be wearing one as well! I am excited to announce that we will be having appointments for computers starting on Monday July 13th. They will be similar to the appointments we have currently. They will be a 30 minute appointment and will be for essential business only. There will be no gaming right now, as we will only be able to have two patron computers available at a time, due to social distancing. I also wanted to make sure you all knew that we DO have the Interlibrary Loan program running now, so you can order books and other materials from the other libraries in Kansas. We also have the rotating books from the book van, just not as many as usual. Lastly, please come stop by and check out our free book bin out front. Those books need a good home, so feel free to take as many as you would like! I hope you’re all staying healthy! Hope to see you soon!

Frankfort City Library Opens For Appointments June 8th!

I am happy to announce that starting on Monday June 8th, the Frankfort City Library will be opening for appointments! I am so excited to finally get to see you all in person! We will still be offering curbside services, if you would rather not come inside the building. There are a few regulations, so please read the following carefully!

Hours for appointments will be: Monday, Wednesday and Friday 1pm to 5 pm. Tuesday and Thursday 9 am to 1 pm.

Each appointment will be 30 minutes long. I ask that each appointment is for one person or family group. The easiest way to make an appointment will be to call Tiffany at 785-292-4320. If she doesn’t answer, please leave a message and she will get back to you ASAP! There will also be a signup sheet right inside the door. You may pop in to sign up during the hours appointments are happening. You may also send an email with your request to franklib@bluevalley.net.

We are asking you to please sanitize your hands as soon as you come inside at the hand sanitizing station. Even if you are just signing up for an appointment, please sanitize!

Please leave all materials in the book drop outside. Do NOT bring them inside and put them on the desk. All materials will be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in and returned to circulation.

Please use proper social distancing measures with anyone else who might be in the library. We are allowing up to 5 people to be in the library at a time.

There will currently be no public restroom available, as there is only one Tiffany and she is not able to clean between each patron!

We will also not be allowing any computer usage, at this time. If things go well, we will hopefully be able to start appointments for computers soon!

Lastly, welcome back to the library!!

We will have forms outside of the library, in a plastic bin, for you to request books, audio books or DVDs. We will be allowing each person to have a total of 5 items out at a time. If you are picking up for more than one person, please fill out a separate request for each person and place the form in the top slot of the book drop.

All books will be carefully sanitized and bagged for you, then we can place them in your trunk or at the curbside for a no contact transfer. Just call the library when you pull up, open your trunk and we will get your books right out to you!

Please return all books to the bottom slot of the book drop, where they will be sanitized and quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to circulation. No face- to- face returns please!
