On Monday, May 3, the Ruth Keeler Memorial Library will reopen its doors to the community, nearly four months after closing due to a winter surge in coronavirus cases.

“We have missed you and look forward to seeing everyone again,” reads a statement on the library’s website. “Because COVID is still with us, we have to limit what we can offer.”

The library will have modified hours Monday through Saturday. The main part of the library will be open for reading browsing and computer use, limited to one-hour visits, with a maximum of ten people at a time. The Children’s Room will be available for half-hour visits by appointment only. Computers and toys will not be available. The library’s conference room will also be open for one-hour use by appointment. Mask wearing will still be required for all visitors.

Curbside service will still be available. The library encourages patrons to email or call with requested items to be checked out and placed in the entranceway for pickup.
