The Riverside County Library System (RCLS) reopened many of its branches to the public on October 5. The libraries will offer modified services with physical distancing measures. Patrons will have limited access to the interiors of the libraries for one hour.
The libraries have several health and safety measures in place, including installing hand sanitizer stations, partitions at counters, floor markers, and removing lounge furniture. The number of public computers has been reduced to safely distance patrons.
Libraries will resume normal business hours and will continue to offer digital and curbside service during this time. Additional services and resources will return as soon as libraries are able to do so in a safe manner.
“We are really excited to have patrons coming back into the libraries,” said Barbara Howison, county librarian. “Our online resources and services have thrived through the pandemic as well as popular programs such as virtual story times. Our staff misses having those day-to-day interactions with the community, and I know our community misses the libraries, too. Our priority remains keeping Riverside County Library System patrons, volunteers, and employees safe and well-informed while doing what we can to help minimize the potential spread of the Coronavirus.”
The following libraries are not reopening at this time:
