The 697 Avenue C location will maintain their typical hours: from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, with hours reduced from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, noted city spokesman Joe Ryan.
“Since work is being done on our historic courtyard and entryway, the only available entrance to the building will be on the 31st Street side of the building,” he explained.
“Inside the building, the public will have access to nearly all our books, spaces for studying, public computers, charging tables, and our temporary Children’s Room, which is located on the 2nd floor in the Gallery. Children’s programming will resume the week of April 10th. Please keep an eye on our social media for the registration information!”
During this partial reopening period, the Story Court temporary library location, located at 16 W 4th St., will remain open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
While both locations are open, books may be returned in person at either location or in the drop box just outside the 31st St. entrance. Additionally, patrons can place holds for books online and have them delivered to their desired library location within 24 hours.
Step-by-step instructions for placing location-based holds will be posted soon and both locations will have public computers, study space, printing, and copying.
