The Arlington Heights Memorial Library is set to reopen to the public at 9 a.m. Wednesday, with capacity limits and other safety protocols in place.

Visits will be limited to one hour and face masks are required for anyone over the age of two. Patrons will be able to browse the collection, check out items and pick up holds inside the library, but open seating, work tables, and conference and study rooms are still unavailable. So, too, is the second floor and The Studio digital media lab. Book donations are not accepted, and microfilm appointments are not available, officials said.


Library programs and one-on-one training appointments will continue to take place virtually, and the drive-up window and bookmobile will be available as contactless holds pickup locations.

The first hour on Fridays will be dedicated to serving vulnerable customers, while the Reading Room branch at the Senior Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
