Why Quarantine Materials for 7 Days: the REALM Project

Four County Library System

Based on results from research into how long the COVID-19 virus remains on library materials, 4CLS member libraries are taking extra precautions to protect staff and patrons. Although library items will remain on your account for a few days after you return them, you will NOT be charged fines for those extra days. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to navigate the best way to keep our patrons and our staff safe!To read about the study and its findings, visit https://www.webjunction.org/explore-topics/COVID-19-research-project.html
