Officials with the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library (EVPL) said Tuesday that all EVPL locations would soon begin offering limited in-person services.
That's after the branch switched exclusively to curbside services in November 2020 due to the rising number of positive COVID-19 cases in the area.
As of Monday, Feb. 15, the public can visit any EVPL location from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
While the libraries will once again be open to in-person services, COVID-19 safeguards remain in place. In addition to other things, plexiglass will remain in high-traffic areas, and distance reminders will stay scattered throughout the libraries. Library visitors are still expected to wear a face covering, per the state mandate.
EVPL To Go, the library's curbside pickup service, will continue at all locations operating from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.
Meeting rooms and study rooms, however, remain closed to community and staff.
