On Tuesday, five of Tulsa County’s libraries will be opening for in person use for the first time since March, but with some restrictions and precautions.
Central, Hardesty Regional, Martin Regionsa, Rudisill Regional, and Zarrow Regional are opening Tuesday at 10 a.m. since their doors closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Wearing a mask is required inside each location at all times and the number of people allowed inside will be limited, but you’re now welcome to browse for books, use the computers or phones, or take advantage of printing services for up to an hour at a time.
TCCL’s Kiley Roberson says they are so happy to be opening again.
“Just to have people inside some of our buildings again we are ecstatic,” Roberson says. “The library teams are excited to welcome people back in and to be able to see kids through the doors again to pick out books.”
The library hours have changed from what they were before the pandemic.
Monday-Thursday: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Each of the 24 locations are still open for curbside pickup as well, just like they have been all summer.
