The Library building will be partially reopened to the public Monday, May 18th at 8 AM. Social distancing orders are still in place, so operations will be as follows:

Our hours will remain altered Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM and Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM. The west side doors will be locked, so all patrons will need to enter through the north entrance. We will be limiting entry to the building to no more than 30 people at a time and the 6-foot distancing rules will apply.

All materials being returned are to be placed in the book drop located on the northeast corner of the building.

Only 5 public computers will be available during this time to adhere to the social distancing rules. During this time we ask that patrons only use the computers for essential business. This means no social media, gaming, watching videos, etc. 30-minute time limits will be enforced.

No one will be allowed to sit and stay in the building during this time. We will also not be allowing meeting room reservations during this time. 

We hope to resume our normal hours in two weeks. Please follow us on Facebook @webbcitylibrary or go to our website webbcitylibrary.org for updates.
