Sutherlin's C. Giles Hunt Public Library is open regular hours now, from 11am until 2pm.  We are limited to 20 patrons at a time and have three public computers available.  We will follow physical distancing protocol as our health authority recommends.  Because returning materials have been and will be disinfected and "quarantined" for a number of days, a limit of five items is now in place. Public and children's programs remain suspended for now and parents and others responsible for children will be required to closely monitor them at all times. As requirements change, we will provide more information about additions of programs and times. Please note the many new postings regarding our current operating requirements when visiting the library.  We are glad to be back!
