City-County Library to open with new hours, new rules

The St. Charles City-County Library will reopen to the public on Monday, June 22.

Hours for most branches will be 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 1 p.m.-5 p.m. on Sundays. These hours will allow staff time for extensive cleaning and reshelving of materials.

The Kathryn Linnemann Branch located on Elm Street in St. Charles will remain closed due to recent flooding. Customers can find details about available services and individual branch hours at myLibrary.org.

“We know our customers are looking forward to browsing library shelves, using computers and interacting with our staff in person,” Library Director Jason Kuhl said. “We encourage our community to take precautions that will make the library a safe place for everyone to use and enjoy.”

Library branches will observe capacity limits. Following CDC guidelines, face coverings will be worn by all staff and customers are encouraged to do the same. If customers require one-on-one assistance, they must remain behind our safety enclosures or wear face coverings to interact with staff.

Returned materials will continue to be quarantined for 72 hours. Passport services, meeting rooms and in-person classes and events remain temporarily unavailable.

If customers prefer not to enter library buildings, branches will continue to offer drive-up or curbside services. Customers can also access virtual classes and events and myLibrary at Home resources online 24/7 at myLibrary.org.
