Changes to Temporary Restrictions as of July 6

As of Monday, July 6, the Norfolk Public Library has made some changes to its available services, hours and restrictions. 

  • There is no longer a time limit on visits and seating and study areas have been partially restored for use.  Since the building is limited to 50% capacity under the current Directed Health Measures, the available seating and room capacities will reflect this limitation.
  • The Meeting Rooms, Study Rooms, MakerSpace, and Microfilm machines have all been reopened and are ready for use under the 50% capacity guidelines.
  • The Children’s Imagination Forest play area remains closed. Other services, like in-person classes, tech tutoring, and notary services remain unavailable due to the difficulty in providing these services while maintaining social distancing.
  • Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult in order to enter the library. Children age 7 and under must stay under direct adult supervision at all times.

The library staff continue to follow heightened cleaning protocols. All materials are disinfected when they are returned and high-touch surfaces are cleaned often throughout the day. Seating and restrooms are cleaned each day. 

Locker pickup and drive thru window service continue to be available for anyone wishing to use these services. 

The library building and drive-thru window are open:

Monday-Thursday 11-6

Friday 11-5

Saturday 10-2

Special Hour for Seniors and High-Risk Populations: Monday-Friday 10-11am
