LINDENHURST -- Study room use, expanded public computer sessions, in-library reading materials and public seating areas will be available when Lake Villa District Library expands services beginning Monday, May 10.
With the declining COVID-19 and increasing vaccination metrics in the library’s service area, library administration is confident this is the appropriate next step.
“We are thrilled to be expanding services,” Library Director Mikael Jacobsen said in a news release. “We can’t wait to see more people back in the building.”
The library has been open its normal business hours since early April, and according to Jacobsen, has taken a measured approach to adding services. Those hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m. to p.m. Saturday.
“All along, we’ve worked to find the best balance between prioritizing both patron and staff safety as well as service to the community,” Jacobsen said.
The mask requirement remains and in-person programs most likely won’t resume until fall. Contactless services such as curbside pickup and home delivery remain in place for those who are not ready to visit the library in person.
