June 1, 2021 | Library News

Great news for patrons: Washington Ave. Branch is now open and five branches are adding hours starting today, June 1! With these changes, APL is operating at 93% of its pre-pandemic capacity.

“The COVID-19 numbers, vaccination rates, and operational capacity are finally at a place where we are almost back to ‘normal’. We’re thrilled to provide our community with a more traditional library experience,” said APL Executive Director Scott C. Jarzombek.

Washington Ave. is open for all in-person services, including browsing, checking out materials, librarian assistance, computer use, faxing/copying/printing/scanning documents, and others. At all locations, study rooms and meeting rooms are currently closed. Visitors are required to wear masks in the branches.
