The Grand County Library will take baby steps in reopening on Tuesday, June 30, after being closed to the public since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Director Carrie Valdes said the library will open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the month of July. Curbside service will continue from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, she said, because many people might not be comfortable re-entering the building due to the pandemic.
Valdes said the opening date could change based on recommendations from local and state health professionals.
With that in mind, Valdes said there are a number of rules in place that patrons must follow.
They are: Everyone must wear a mask at all times and practice six feet of social distancing. An adult must supervise children.
Only 14 people will be permitted entrance at one time and patrons are asked to limit their visit to one 30-minute session per day.
Only adults can use computers and they also will be limited to a half-hour session per day. Patrons are asked to check in with the information desk prior to using a computer.
The restrooms will not be available. The public restrooms in the Moab Information Center at Main and Center streets are open.
Here’s some additional information:
The Wi-Fi signal reaches around the outside of the building. The network is grand county library and the password is gcplwifi.
Wi-Fi hotspots, ipads and chromebooks are available for checkout.
What isn’t available is sitting, gathering or socializing, use of study tables, and the tutoring room, meeting room or toys and games in the children’s area.
