Procedures to Reduce Spread of Viruses During In-house Programs 

LaCrosse Public Library takes community health very seriously and conducts strong cleaning practices with its facilities, materials, and staff. LaCrosse Public Library staff will follow steps to increase safety for both staff and patrons from the spread of viruses (Coronavirus and other types of viruses). As the weather changes and prevents outside learning experiences, all in-house programs and use of the Library’s community room will require procedural precautions that must be enforced. These procedural precautions are for the safety of all participants. The number of participants is dependent upon the ability to social distance appropriately. If room capacity is maximized, more sessions can to be scheduled.
