Palatine library will reopen Monday
The Palatine Public Library, closed to the public since late November, will reopen to the public Monday, Feb. 1, with some restrictions.
Hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. There will be a capacity limit of 75 people, and visitors will have to wear a mask and maintain 6-foot social distance.
Patrons will be asked to keep their visits brief. Curbside pickup appointments still will be available.
Open seating and study/meeting rooms will not be available. There will be a one-hour limit on computer use, and the printer/copier/fax will be available.
The library is undergoing a renovation, so construction walls were installed on the first floor. The public is asked to adhere to construction signs and stay out of those areas.
Youth and teen materials are located on the first floor, and adult and audiovisual collections are on the second floor. Maps will be available.
Earlier this month, the library was entirely closed for a week after a number of staff members were diagnosed with COVID-19.
Programming will continue to be offered virtually.
