Join us on our Round Lake Library for Teens Facebook page at 7pm on Monday, January 18th to talk about books you’ve gotten lost in or couldn’t stand.
At this time we are required to quarantine all returned materials for a minimum of 96 hours. This time is based off of ALA guidance resulting from OCLC studies of how long SARS-CoV-2 survives on the various surfaces of borrowable materials.
Please be aware that it may take up to a week before returned items no longer show as check out on your account.
If you receive a overdue notice about items you have returned in the past week, you can disregard it.
No late fees are being charged at this time.
At our current stage of reopening, the Round Lake Library and Malta Branch will be allowing patrons in for limited browsing.
Library hours will be Monday thru Friday 10 am – 6 pm.
Patrons will be allowed to browse the stacks, being mindful of the one way aisles and maintaining 6 foot social distancing guidelines.
Please sanitize your hands before touching any library materials and after touching your mask, face, etc.
Only a limited number of patrons will be allowed in the library at one time. Patrons may be asked to wait outside if capacity has been reached.
Returned material will continue to be quarantined for a minimum of 96 hours before being checked in. As we are not open Saturday or Sunday, some items will not be checked in until a week after return. No late fees are being charged at this time.
- A limited number of public computers are open for no more than one hour of use per patron per day. Please ask for a keyboard at the circulation desk.
- Patrons may also opt to use their own laptop and the library’s wifi. There is still a one hour limit to remaining in the library.
- Copy/fax/scanning services available – please ask staff for assistance before touching the machine
- Seating areas have been removed
- Contactless curbside pick-up is still available for those who wish to use it
- If you are unable to wear the proper face covering, please contact the library and we will make arrangements for curbside pick-up

As we continue to move through our reopening plan and our area numbers and statistics continue to improve we will work towards returning to our full services.
Want to make a fabric face mask?
Help protect yourself and others when you have to go out in public.
How to Make a Mask
What you will need:
- Cotton Fabric, any color or print
- Rope elastic, beading cord elastic will work (you may also use 1/8” flat elastic)
- Cut the elastic 7” long and tie a knot at each end (DO NOT knot the ends of the flat)
You can Make Two Sizes: Adult or Child
- Put right side of cotton fabric together. Cut 2 9×6 inch (adult) or 7.5×5 inch (child) pieces.
- Starting at the center of the bottom edge, sew to the first corner, stop. Sew the elastic with the edge out into the corner. A few stiches forward and back will hold this.
- Sew to the next corner, stop, and bring the other end of the same elastic to the corner and sew few stiches forward and back.
- Now sew across that top of the mask to the next corner. Again put an elastic with the edge out.
- Sew to the next corner and sew in the other end of the same elastic.
- Sew across the bottom leaving about 1.5” to 2” open. Stop, cut the thread. Turn inside out.
- Pin 3 tucks on each side of the mask. Make sure the tucks are the same direction.
- Sew around the edge of the mask twice.
