According to the library’s Facebook page, the facility will reopen with a number of restrictions to follow social distancing guidelines.

— Only 100 patrons will be allowed inside the building at any time.

— Staff will be required to wear face masks and patrons are strongly encouraged to do the same.

— The first hour (from 10 to 11 a.m) Monday through Saturday is reserved for high-risk patrons.

— Meeting rooms and study rooms, along with some equipment in the Creative Space, will not be available.

— There will be no tables for studying or working.

— Public computer time will be limited to 30 minutes with one renewal per day. Several of the computers were removed to comply with social distancing guidelines, and time limits were reduced to allow more people to use the computers.

The library is offering curbside pickup for reserved items or the library in a box delivery service, which is open to all.

The drop box and the eLibrary program are still open, and summer learning challenges and programs will be online.
