Richland Library Opens Its Doors For Limited In-Person Service
Going to the library and browsing for a book was once a favorite activity of my family. The pandemic of COVID-19 has brought even that little activity to a screeching halt.
The good news is that there is light at the end of the tunnel as the Richland Public Library has reopened its doors today for limited in-person service.
The Richland Public Library released a press release discussing the limited in-person opening.
The release says: As per Washington Governor Jay Inslee's recently announced library guidance that allows libraries to operate at 25% occupancy in Phase 1 counties, the library is operating with the same safeguards in place.
Here are a few things to consider when heading to the library in Richland:
You must wear a face covering, maintain social distancing and limit your time to 30 minutes. No food or drinks allowed and no use of computers or printers. If you are unable to wear a face-covering, use the online resources and the curbside service.
The library will be open Monday through Friday for in-person service from 10:00 a.m. to noon, curbside service from noon to 4:00 p.m., and in-person and curbside from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

I realize it's not perfect but any opening is a good thing. I'm sure a lot of people are anxious to smell those old books and look for something to read to pass the time during these pandemic times.
