  • Shelter Cove Library is open


Starting Monday, October 5 at 10 AM, the Shelter Cove Library is Leveling Up! We have received County approval to move to Level 3, allowing one patron and a librarian inside the library at a time.

What's the Plan?

As always, we care deeply about our community's health. Please review your responsibilities:

  1. Hand sanitizing and masking by patrons are required prior to entering the library. We provide the sanitizer and have some single-use masks available if you forget yours. Just ask! One child under the age of ten may enter if supervised by an adult. Children over the age of two must wear a mask. Children over the age of ten may enter alone to find books and DVDs.
  2. When you come inside you will be handed a carrier to hold the books and DVDs you are considering. Touch it? Take it! leaving what you don't borrow in your carrier.
  3. Hand sanitizing prior to leaving is also required.

Materials handled by patrons but not borrowed will be sanitized before being re-shelved, and carriers will be sanitized between patrons. We will continue to quarantine all other returns for a minimum of three days before re-shelving.


We will accept donations as follows until we can make room and increase our volunteer team to process.

All materials must be in good or better condition; please, no tears or mold.Books and DVDs ONLY
A maximum of 3 books/5 DVDs per visit
Fiction dated after 2003
