Current Library Availability

The Dwight Foster Public Library is currently open to the public.

The mission of the Dwight Foster Public Library is to help people achieve their full potential by being a leading resource for information, education, culture and recreation.  The library continues to offer a wide variety of physical and digital resources to meet the needs of our community.  Our building is open for browsing, and our friendly staff members are available to assist kids and families.  For patrons who are not comfortable coming into the library building, we are continuing to offer our curbside hold pickup service.

Hours:

  • 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday
  • 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday
  • 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

We will continue to provide Curbside Pickup during library hours for those who are uncomfortable entering a public building. Click here for Curbside Hold Pickup instructions.

For the safety of our staff and our community, the Dwight Foster Public Library will now require all patrons to limit their visit to the library to 30 minutes or less and all patrons over the age of 4 to wear a face covering.  We are asking library users to conduct their business quickly and treat their visit to the library as they would a trip to the grocery store.  As hard as it is, we are not encouraging collaboration, conversation, or lingering at the library at this time.  Also, all patrons are strongly encouraged to maintain a safe distance between themselves, staff, and other patrons and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer.

We are allowing use of our 4 study rooms for a maximum of 1 hour.

In this phase of our reopening limited services are available including photocopying, scanning and faxing, and reference help which can be given while maintaining social distance. Public computers are available for you to use for 30 minutes.

For more information, contact the library at 920-563-7790 during the business hours listed above.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Library Director Eric Robinson at 920-563-7790 or erobinson@fortlibrary.org
