Library Services: COVID Response: Library Service Phases

E&H Library is currently in Phase Blue

Important Note to Patrons: During a pandemic, when the library is in Phases Red through Blue, library materials must be quarantined upon return for 4 days (96 hours) or the number of days recommended by the CDC. This will impact holds, HAL requests, interlibrary loans, and items being checked in/removed from accounts. This is to ensure that germs are not shared with library items.
