Weather Closing Policy

Gale Library Policies

In the event of weather-related closings or delays the library will follow the decision of the Sanborn Regional School District.

During school vacations and on Saturdays, the decision to open or close the library will be at the discretion of the Library Director and/or the Chairperson of the Trustees.

In the case of power outages, the library will close after 1 hour during the day, and ½ hour during the evening (after 4:00 pm).

Fines will not be charged for any day on which the library is closed.

Staff members will be paid for their shift if they had been previously scheduled.

This policy is to help ensure the safety of our patrons and staff, and allows for snow removal and the clearing of roads.
