The Cherry Hill Public Library will be closed until November 18 after an employee tests positive for COVID-19, according to a social media statement from the library.
The 72.00 square foot facility will be cleaned and disinfected during decommissioning. Officials say they are working with the Camden County Health Department to clean up one of the largest city libraries in the state.
Borrowed books and other materials will be automatically renewed until November 30, and officials have asked not to return the documents to external containers, where staff will remain unoccupied during the closure. Donations to the town̵7;s grocer will also not be collected at the library during this time.
Virtual programs and access to e-books will continue during the closing hours.
New Jersey on Wednesday reported an additional 2,472 coronavirus infections and nine more deaths, marking 18 consecutive days of more than 1,000 new cases as the state faces a second wave of pandemic.
