Library reopening

There is lots of talk about public libraries reopening in June. It is not a matter of just opening the doors and we go back to normal. There will be several restrictions for everyone to follow to keep us open. These will be announced soon along with an opening date. Please note at present upon reopening there will be no public computer access, study areas, toy collection or newspaper reading area.
