COMFORT PUBLIC LIBRARY IS STILL OPEN!
We’re thrilled to announce that the Comfort Public Library is still in business and in order to keep you safe, we still have some measures in place for your protection.
• All returned books are being kept in “quarantine” for four days per CDC guidelines. So even if you’ve reserved a book, it might be up to a week before it can be checked out.
• Hand sanitizer must be used upon entry; there is a station set up at the door.
• Masks are encouraged.
• Eight computers are now available for use, six in the Tech room and two upstairs.
• All children must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times within the library.
