Returned Item Quarantine Ending

On May 1st–based on guidance by the CDC and the Mohawk Valley Library System–the Schoharie Free Library will no longer be quarantining returned library items before checking them in and returning them to the shelves. For patrons, this means TWO important things:

  1. Beginning May 1st, you will be allowed to return items inside the library, though the outdoor drop box will remain open for your convenience.
  2. While the quarantine was in effect, patrons were given additional “fine-free days” beyond the due date to accommodate the quarantine period. Starting May 1st, this grace period will be discontinued. Late fees will begin to accrue the day after an item is due, just like before the pandemic.

Our other COVID safety measures (including mask-wearing and social distancing) will remain in place for the time being, but this is an important and exciting step in our cautious, gradual return to “normal” operations.
