Due to the rising number of Covid Cases in Starke and surrounding counties, the North Judson - Wayne Township Public Library is taking measures to ensure that the Library remains a safe place to visit. The health and safety of our patrons and Library staff is of utmost concern.


Starting Thursday, September 2, 2021, the Library will be enacting Covid procedures and guidelines. These include:


Required Masks: Patrons MUST wear a mask to enter the building and during the entire duration of the visit, even if you have received your full COVID vaccine, per Library Board.


Quick Browsing Encouraged: Patrons are encouraged to keep their visits to the Library brief, limited to 30 minutes a day. Computer usage will also be limited to this time.


Fines Waived: All fines starting tomorrow (September 2nd) are being waived.


Events and Meetings Suspended: All upcoming in-person events at the Library have been suspended. We will do our best to reschedule canceled events as circumstances allow.


Fast Check-Out Service: We encourage you to call ahead and tell us the materials you wish to check out. We will check these out for you and then you only need to quickly come in and pick them up.


No Unaccompanied Children: Children are still welcome to visit the Library, but they must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver over the age of 18.


We also highly encourage you to make use of our new book drop beside the door! In addition to books in the BOOK slot, DVDs and audiobooks can be returned in the MEDIA slot.


We are not accepting donations at this time.


If you do not feel well or have been in contact with people whom you suspect are not well or if you or others in your family are at high-risk for Covid, we encourage you to call us (574-896-2841) or email (lib.norjud@gmail.com) if you need anything.


We also encourage you to use Libby/Overdrive at this time. We have thousands of digital resources available. If you need help using or installing our digital resources, please call or email us. We would be more than happy to help you learn how to use our resources.


We’ll keep you informed as this situation progresses. Stay healthy and stay safe.
