The Quinte West Public LIbrary will quarantine library material for 72 hours during the ongoing pandemic. However, as books cannot be effectively cleaned and disinfected, it may be wise to store books for a minimum of 24 hours before handling them. • Patrons should wash hands before and after handling books and other items, avoid touching their faces while reading and avoid sneezing or coughing onto the page while reading. • Patrons who are immune compromised or otherwise susceptible to COVID19 infection should not take out items from the library. • Due to the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, these services are subject to change.
