Wheaton Public Library reopening with 'Grab & Go' service

The Wheaton Public Library will reopen with reduced services and hours after a nearly four-month coronavirus closure.

The library will offer "Grab & Go" and curbside pickup services when the building reopens to the public on July 13.

The Grab & Go service will include browsing, material check out and public computer use only.

Only cardholders will be able to check out library materials.

The library also will limit building capacity and count patrons as they enter the facility at 225 N. Cross St. Those in line will be asked to wait once capacity is reached.

Public computers will be spaced out 6 feet apart, and use will be limited to 30 minutes per patron.

The Early Childhood Area will remain closed and staff members will retrieve materials as needed.

Face coverings will be required for all library staff and patrons older than 2, in accordance with state health guidelines.

Patrons will be asked to limit their time in the library to 30 minutes and any staff interaction to less than 10 minutes. Patrons also must maintain 6 feet of social distancing.

The library's Grab & Go and curbside pickup services will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays; and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

The library also will continue operating virtual programs and services.
