Julia Boyer Reinstein Library Rules and Courtesies Information

In an effort to maintain health safety for both staff and the library users, library hours/services have been modified. The changes range from new rules to expected courtesies while in the building as follows:


  1. You MUST wear a mask at all times while in the building, the only exception being children under the age of 2 years old.
  2. You are to keep a total of 6 feet distance from other patrons for social distancing.
  3. Materials will be quarantined immediately upon returned and will not be checked in for 3 days. This means materials will still be on your account for 3 days, at most, upon return. We will then back date items to reflect the original return date. Again, we will not be checking in materials immediately.
  4. Study rooms are closed to the public due to social distancing.
  5. To enforce social distancing we will not be allowing tutors at this time.
  6. Restrooms will be in use for one person at a time. Please wait outside until the restrooms are clear.


  1. We have closed off every other computer in the buildings to conform to social distancing. Therefore, please know that unlimited usage may not be possible. Be prepared for a limit of 1 hour on computers. Additionally, we will only be able to provide very limited computer assistance due to social distancing protocols.
  2. Most seating has been removed to encourage social distancing, please be prepared to stand while using the library (exception of few tables/computers).
  3. There will no longer be multiple lines at the front desk. Instead, you are expected to wait in one line for all services including check out, reference, directions, etc. Markings will be placed on the ground to direct passage in the Service Desk area.
  4. Please do not put books back on the shelf. Place books you are not checking out on a nearby table. The library staff will put them away.
  5. There will be sanitizing stations throughout the library.

The Cheektowaga libraries will not be able to accommodate meeting room requests and in-house programming is suspended (online only) until further notice. Hours/services will be modified accordingly, on the fly, as health safety protocols change. Thank you for your patience, we look forward to seeing everyone again.
