More from the release:

The programs the library holds regularly – like story times, classes, movies, and book club meetings – will not take place.

We are canceling reservations made by local groups to use our public meeting spaces for community gatherings, as well as our study rooms at the Downtown and Madison branches.

Finally, we are suspending our outreach work of taking story times, puppet shows, and other services into the public schools and community centers.

All 12 locations will remain open to check out materials and use public computers. We are taking extra cleaning precautions with our public spaces.
