In preparation for reopening, the library staff is working with City of Troy staff to create plans and policies to ensure the safety of the employees and the public. This is our highest priority.
Current plans include a phased reopening, based first and foremost on any directive from the Governor’s office and/or the Oakland County Health Department. Staffing also plays a role as all staff are required to remain socially distant. This limits how many people we can have at one time in any given work area of the Library.
At some future date, we will reopen the Library to the public, but it is impossible to attach a date to that as yet. Much depends on direction from the Governor and the Oakland County Health Department, including building capacity and number of people allowed to gather in one spot. We are in the process of updating the Library’s physical space to accommodate social distancing for staff workstations and for patrons, as well as intensive safety protocols.

Phase 3: Limited Opening
In Phase 3, limited access, we will have to limit the number of people who are in the building at any one time. Patrons will be able to enter the building to pick up material but in a “grab and go” sense. Study areas, public computers and children’s play areas will not be open.
Phase 4: Business as Usual
In Phase 4, normal operations will resume.
