For the health and safety of all, patrons can expect the following adjustments when visiting MCLS:

  • Limited building capacities

    • Marion – 6
  • Browsing with Caution
    • We ask that patrons wishing to browse our collection of materials sanitize their hands upon entry to the building.
    • SC Room/Genealogy room is currently closed to the public. Patrons can still access these materials with the help of a staff member.
  • Precautionary Check Points
    • When entering any of our three branches, patrons will:
      • Have temperatures checked via contactless thermometer
      • Be required to wear a face covering (MCLS offers disposable masks for those in need)
  • Social distancing efforts


These are indeed unprecedented times as we are all aware. Still, we recognize the importance of our library and the roll it plays in the community. That being said, we look forward to opening our doors once again. We thank you for your patience over the past weeks and your cooperation in the days ahead. Happy reading.
