Library Appointments

As part of our phase 2 of reopening, we are going to allow patrons into the building by appointment. The front doors will remain locked and closed to the general public. Here are some general guidelines for this time:

  • Maintain 6 feet social distance from other patrons and staff
  • Stay in front of the shields at either desk
  • Hand sanitizer will be available, please use it before you touch anything during your appointment
  • Wearing a mask is encouraged
  • Bathrooms are closed to the public
  • Toys, puzzles, and games are still unavailable, browsing appointments are for checking out materials only
  • Fabric furniture is not available
  • Appointments are for one individual or household at a time
  • Curbside pickup will still be available, pickup times may vary

Types of Appointments:

Computer/Copier

If you need to use a computer, printer, or copier, we are offering one hour appointments from 10 AM to 2:30 PM. The appointments are available on the half hour from 10 AM to 1:30 PM.

Browsing

If you would like to browse for materials, either upstairs or in the Children's department, we are offering half hour appointments during the day by request and from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM. The appointments are available on the half hour from 5 PM to 7:30 PM.

Fax

If you need to have something faxed, we will be offering this in the Children's department from 10 to 2:30 at the same time as the computer/copier appointments. The appointments are available on the half hour from 10 AM to 2:00 PM.

If these times do not work for you and you have need for an appointment, please reach out to Katie at director@maquoketa.lib.ia.us. We are flexible and will work with you to find a solution.
