Reopening

Welcome Back

All Richmond Public Library branches open to in-person service

Patrons are able to browse shelves, borrow materials, and use computers, printers, and copiers for up to one hour. For patrons needing additional time to use a computer, the Library has laptops, Chromebooks and WiFi hotspots that can be checked out for home use.

RPL Express Service Guidelines:

  • The Library requests that all patrons wear masks while in Library buildings in order to protect those who cannot currently be vaccinated. The face covering must cover the mouth and nose.
  • The Library has limited seating and computers.
  • The Children's Room will operate as a separate location. Patrons will not be allowed to move between the Main Reading Room and the Children's Room. Staff can retrieve material for patrons from either location.
  • Newspapers will be unavailable until further notice.
  • Public restrooms will be available. Water fountains are unavailable until further notice.
  • Hand sanitizer and face masks will be available while supplies last.
  • Sanitizing wipes will be available for shared computer equipment.

Library services will expand as public health guidance allows.
