Local Library Lands On Best Places to Work List

Portneuf District Library

A Chubbuck library will close for the next week after a staff member tests positive for COVID-19.

The Portneuf District Library’s board of trustees voted to close the library for a week after the confirmation of the positive result on Monday, August 24.

Since reopening in May, the library has taken every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus. All books are quarantined upon return, common areas like computers and bathrooms are disinfected regularly, and staff members wear masks and other PPE as much as possible.

While the library is closed, a professional cleaning company will clean and disinfect the building and all of its surfaces. The book drop on the south side of the building will remain open for returns and digital services continue to be up and running. The library parking lot is also available for wi-fi use.

The library will reopen on September 1.
