Library set to re-open with new visitor policies

NORMAL (HOI) — The Normal Public Library is officially reopening Wednesday, with some changes to what visitors can expect.

The doors will open at noon for a "Grab and Go" setup, to allow for the completion of a few final construction tasks.

Visitors are allowed to stay for an hour maximum, with each visit made by one member of a household at a time. Patrons will be able to walk around and browse as they please.

Desktop and laptop computers will be available by appointment, to make sure there's time for proper cleaning and disinfecting between users.

Other spaces, like meeting rooms and most seating areas, are off-limits for the time being.

Going forward, the library will require all visitors to wear a face covering when in the building, plus keep a six-foot distance from others while using hand sanitizers placed throughout the building.

Hours are 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM Monday through Thursday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Friday and Saturday, and 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM on Sundays.
