Library returns to pre-COVID schedule

Warren Public Library has reopened.

No appointments. No restricted hours.

COVID-19 has caused some ups and downs for the library, often impacting ins and outs.

The library shut down multiple times.

It also maintained some services while closing doors to the public.

Then, there were times when patrons were allowed in, but appointments were required.

Those days are over… for now.

According to a Wednesday release from Director Kelli Knapp, the library has returned to its pre-COVID hours.

Anyone looking to use the library is welcome from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“We are requesting that masks be worn and social distancing maintained,” Knapp said. “Public computers and the reference department are available.”

There are some limits.

“No indoor programming is happening at this time, but virtual programs continue,” Knapp said. “Meeting rooms are not currently available for public use.”
