IndyPL Begins Phased Reopening of Branches to Patrons
The first phase of resuming in-branch patron services began on Monday, June 15 at select Indianapolis Public Library locations, with certain limitations to ensure the safety of patrons and staff in regards to the Covid-19 crisis.
Curbside pickup of materials, which began on May 18, will continue each day between 12-5 pm. Book drops are the preferred method for returning materials. The InfoZone, located within The Children’s Museum, will remain closed until further notice. The Lawrence Branch continues to be closed for major renovations.
All patrons over two years old are required to wear masks, and a library staff member will be present at building entrances to monitor capacity. Plexiglass barriers will be present at transaction points, and social distancing of six feet is to be maintained. There will be a one-hour time limit on public computers, and regular cleaning of all facilities. Patrons will be asked to maintain proper hygiene and to keep visits brief. The Library will continue to evaluate its environment for staff and patrons. Safety standards will be subject to change as necessary.
