The A.K. Smiley Public Library, closed to the public since December, will resume in-person services on Monday, March 8.
“All of us here at the A.K. Smiley Public Library are eager to welcome our patrons back into the building,” Library Director Don McCue said in a statement. “We will resume the procedures we implemented last fall in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.”
The library was closed to patrons due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in San Bernardino County, and offered its Books-To-Go curbside service. This will still be available to library users after March 8.
To enter the library, every patron over the age of two must wear a mask that covers their nose and stay socially distanced from others. The bathrooms and coffee bar area are closed, and visitors can only stay for up to an hour a day.
The library’s new temporary hours are 2 to 6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, noon to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. —Catherine
