“Our plans remain flexible and subject to change as we reinstitute library services,” said Tim Kambitsch, DML Executive Director. “As much as we try to anticipate all scenarios, we know that the situation is constantly evolving. Library leadership will continue to monitor trends, while our staff and visitors will play an important role in ensuring and adjusting safety protocols, as necessary.”
