Limited hours at Breese Public Library
    Breese Public Library opened is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and Friday, and 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesday. 
    All patrons are asked to wear a face mask or covering while in the building. Disposable masks will be provided for those who forget their mask.
    All books will be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in and put back on the shelf. Patrons are asked to keep 6 feet apart of others while perusing the aisles. 
    The desktop computers have been separated to allow distance between patrons, and patrons will be asked to sanitize the technology after use. 
    The children’s room will not be available for play as all toys and chairs have been temporarily put away to avoid germ exchange. We do encourage families to come in to pick out books, but discourage meetings and gatherings. At this time, no programs or tutoring sessions will be permitted. 
    These provisions have been outlined by the Illinois Library Association and Illinois Heartland Library System.
