CYBER COMPLIANCE AND ITS EFFECT ON THE WEBSITE

Cyber security is real, and as keepers of information we are required by law to protect the privacy of our members’ online presence through our applications.  Because of this, our website is being rebuilt in-keeping with the new world-wide requirements for security.  In the meantime, please note that there are a few glitches.  Firstly, the Policies that are shown aren’t necessarily the most current version.  A good example of this is the NY HERO Act and our recently updated Bylaws.  We expect this glitch to be a thing of the past with the new website, expected to be completed and ready for publishing ASAP.

Click here to read how NYS HERO Act has affected us

As you know, the Morristown Public Library is a public library in name only. We are actually what is by law an Association library. Normally this doesn’t mean much, but currently this is an important difference. Being an Association Library means we fall under NYS HERO Act. When the Governor calls a State of Emergency, the HERO Act goes into effect for all private businesses and alas, Association libraries. It means we are mandated by law to uphold the conditions of the Act, to name a pertinent few: 1. Properly worn masks 2. limited occupancy 3. no indoor meetings or programs 4. Health screening for everyone before entry Yes, this means we must revert back to safety conditions as they were a year ago. We apologize for the inconvenience but ask you to be patient. Our community’s safety is, and will always be, inherent within the mission of the Trustees and Staff. As of this morning, all indoor programs are cancelled, including Movie Mondays and Saturday’s craft project.

FULLY OPEN IN SEPTEMBER

The Morristown Public Library Board of Trustees was hopeful that all temporary safety policies created in response to Covid-19 would have been able to be rescinded by the end of September. The current local rise of the Delta variant has deemed that impossible for the time being. In the meantime, the library is exceeding NYS Minimum Library Standards and is available for masked browsing and computer use its regular 31 hours per week. We look forward to safely serving all of our patrons’ needs!
