The Salida Regional Library is asking for community input for their strategic plan. They request that community members take a few minutes to answer their community needs assessment. The survey is available until March 8.

The Library believes that an effective community needs assessment provides a framework for the library to allocate resources most effectively according to the needs of its community, remain relevant to its patrons and help position it to react to changing trends in the future.

The library is currently open for browsing, checkout and computer use. Masks are mandatory and patrons must practice social distancing with staff and other library visitors. There is a 30-minute time limit for browsing with a maximum of fifteen patrons allowed in the library at all times. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the library.

The book drop on Fourth Street at the alley is open 24/7 and all returns may go in the book drop, including media, if it is in a bag. Items undergo extensive cleaning before being returned to circulation.

Patrons may not sit or view materials in house. Access to the collection is restricted to browsing only to comply with health and safety measures.

Regular curbside pickup has ended, but if you are uncomfortable coming into the Library, they ask you call from outside the building and they will bring items to you.
