Overbrook Library will reopen to the public (with restrictions) starting Wed. 6/17/20

Overbrook Library is happy to announce that we’re moving into the next phase of our phased reopening plan beginning this Wednesday 6/17/20. We will be open for browsing / item checkout / computer use from 12pm-6pm M-F with an additional hour for seniors from 11am-12pm M-F.

During this time, we ask that you keep 6 ft apart and we will only have 6 computers available in order to keep social distancing guidelines. Masks are strongly encouraged for your safety and the safety of the library staff.

We will be enforcing a 1 hour time limit to be in the library during this time in an effort to limit our number of patrons. We ask that you check out your items and use the computers or other technology, but that people not “hang out” and read / study in the library for more than one hour.

During this time we will not be accepting any book donations, and we will not allow use of video game consoles.

We will have disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer available, and we will still be offering curbside pickup of holds if you choose not to come into the library building. Unfortunately, due to patron browsing, we are unable to guarantee that items in the library have been sanitized since being touched by other patrons.

The small conference room will be available starting Wednesday, but the community room will remain closed until August 1st. We can now take reservations for events in the community room after that time. It is important to note that the community room is not sanitized / cleaned by library staff in between events. If you book the room you are expected to clean up after your event in accordance with our cleaning checklist and you may want to sanitize tables / etc. prior to use for your events.
