Starting June 1st, the Rochester Public Library will be open for browsing without the need for an appointment.
“As we continue to see NH vaccination rates go up and Covid-19 cases go down, it is time to return to more normal library service,” says Library Director Marie Lejeune. “The Library’s curbside service will continue through the summer, and possibly longer.”
Also starting in June, patrons will be able to check out books on all floors of the Library. According to staff, this change is expected to minimize wait times at the often-busy Main Desk.
“Initially, the Library will be open at half capacity,” Lejeune continued. “This shouldn’t have any impact on patrons using the main floors of the Library, but it may impact families using the Children’s Room. This age group doesn’t yet have access to vaccinations so we are erring on the side of caution.”
