We are happy to announce that the Kimball Library will reopen to the public on Monday, July 6th!
Our first priority is your safety and that of the staff. Therefore, strict social distancing and masks will be required of the 20 individuals who can visit the Library at one time. Admittance will be based on a token system. A visiting adult will take 1 token on their way inside the building and return it when leaving; if all the tokens are taken, the 21st visitor is welcome to wait on a bench inside the lobby until someone leaves. Children too young to visit independently do not need to take a token. Out of consideration for your neighbors, brief, purposeful visits are encouraged. For now, Take Out service will continue.
The Library will return to its original schedule on July 6th: Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 8 PM and Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. The Children’s Room will be open for browsing only; all borrowing will take place at the Main Desk. Returns must continue to be placed in the drops so that they can be quarantined.
The large Meeting Room will not be available at this time. However, the Conference and Study Room will be open for groups of 4 and 2 respectively. In order to preserve social distancing, programs will continue to be virtual and staff will be positioned 6 feet away from visitors.
We have missed you! We are stocked with new and exciting materials and are looking forward to opening our doors again.
