“DC Public Library to Begin Phase Two Operations June 29” starting with 8 locations

From DCPL:

“Starting June 29, DC Library locations will begin expanding service on weekdays as part of Phase Two. In addition to current services including picking up and returning library materials, customers will soon be allowed to enter buildings to pick up books, remote printing and use a limited number of public computers and printers.

To ensure public health and safety of library staff and users, controlled entry will be in place to limit the number of people in the library at one time. Customers must wear a face mask or covering and practice social distancing when visiting the Library. Browsing for books and meeting room reservations are not part of the Phase Two reopening. Reading rooms and outdoor terraces remain closed to the public.

Starting Monday, June 29, the following locations will be open with expanded services from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM and from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Anacostia (Ward 8)
Benning (Ward 7)
Cleveland Park (Ward 3)
Mount Pleasant (Ward 1)
Northeast (Ward 6)
Shepherd Park (Ward 4)
West End (Ward 2)
Woodridge (Ward 5)

The locations will be closed from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM every day for cleaning and disinfecting.

Starting Monday, July 6, customers will be able to return books outside at six new locations including:

Bellevue (Ward 8)
Capitol View (Ward 7)
Francis-Gregory (Ward 7)
Petworth (Ward 4)
Shaw (Ward 6)
