The Algoma Public Library showed off its new COVID-19 fighting barriers on Friday (Oct. 16), glass patitions that allow computer users to sit in closer proximity. The library posted on social media:

We were excited to have our new glass barriers installed Wednesday thanks to Packerland Glass. With our glass barriers we can continue our efforts to keep staff and patrons safe as well as have more computers available for patrons to use at one time.
