Keene Public Library will reopen its doors to the public for limited hours starting Monday, July 6. Based on health and safety guidelines, up to 60 people at a time will be welcomed to research, browse collections, and make one-hour appointments for computers. Hours will be limited to two-hour increments so that staff can sanitize public areas regularly. Meeting rooms are not available.
Library hours during the phase two reopening will be:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10 a.m. – noon & 2 - 4 p.m.
Tuesday, Thursday 10 a.m. - noon, 2 - 4 p.m. & 5 - 7 p.m.
Saturday 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
All visitors must comply with recommended health and safety protocols while on the Library campus. This includes the requirement that persons over the age of 5 wear an appropriate face mask or face covering when proceeding into the Library spaces beyond the designated area of the Library Foyer. Masks will be available to visitors who do not have one with them. Six-foot distances to others will be encouraged, inside and outside of the building. Returned materials should be placed in one of the exterior book drops before entering. One public-use computer will be available in a protected area for those who are unable to wear a face mask. Visitors are asked to make their visits to the library efficient so that others may enter the building during the designated hours.
The staff looks forward to welcoming our patrons back to the Library campus.
