Submitted by San Juan Island Library.
San Juan Island Library District is delighted to announce its plans to reopen to the public.
Starting Tuesday, June 8, the library will reopen its doors for limited services and hours, providing simultaneous indoor browsing and curbside services on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., with a 65-plus/high-risk population hour on Tuesdays from 10-11 a.m.
• Inside the Library: Patrons are welcome back inside — 20 people at a time for 20 minutes. Patrons may find materials, pick up holds, and use express computers.
• Safety: In accordance with current county requirements, patrons must be masked and physically distanced at all times in the library. Seating is provided only for express computer use at this time.
• Library closed Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5: The library will be closed with no curbside pick-up in preparation for reopening with expanded services.
• Returns: Quarantining of materials is no longer required, so item check-ins will be expedited.
• What’s next: The library looks forward to expanding hours and services as they move ahead!
“Our grateful thanks for everyone’s support during our building’s closure,” Library Director Laurie Orton said. “I also want to acknowledge the efforts of our dedicated staff, who adapted quickly and creatively during difficult times to continue serving our community.
“The library exists to serve, and we are excited to open our doors and restore some of the library traditions our patrons know and love. Our staff looks forward to sharing in-person conversation and laughter with many of you very soon!”
