The Indianapolis Public Library is planning to reopen its branches to the public on Monday. Our partners at WFYI report patrons will once again be allowed inside the facilities to use computers, browse collections, and check out materials through self-service kiosks.
The library says programming and events will remain online.
According to library officials, a one-hour time limit will be enforced if a branch reaches capacity. At Central Library, the time limit will be enforced using a badging system.
Mask wearing and social distancing will be required inside buildings.
The library limited in-branch services last year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Library says its board approved allowing patrons back in branches after consultation with Dr. Virginia Caine, director of the Marion County Public Health Department.
The library says branches may close without notice for cleaning or staffing limitations. You can find more information by clicking here.
