The Library plans to open its doors to the public on June 15, 2020.
Services will be limited to start, as will the number of visitors allowed in the library at one time. Visitors will be expected to observe the three W‘s : Wear a mask, Wait 6 feet apart, and Wash hands frequently.
Public computer stations will be available, as well as WiFi, print, copy and scan service. Library materials like books and movies will only be accessed by library staff for now. Visitors will be able to request materials at the desk for staff to find in the collection and check out.
The library will continue to offer curbside pickup and books by mail during this time.
For a complete list of what services will (and won’t) be available when we open June 15, visit giblib.org/covid19
