After almost three weeks of being open to the public again, RPL is going back to curbside service through at least September:
“Richmond Public Library will temporarily pause in-person library services at all locations effective Thursday, July 23. The pause is in response to recent increases in COVID-19 exposures and increase in cases.
Curbside library service will resume. This temporary change is a proactive decision to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. RPL will monitor data, news and information from health officials daily so we can bring back in-person service as soon as the situation improves and the key indicators trend downward. This pandemic crisis is fast moving and requires dynamic response and ability to adjust library service plans accordingly.Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we adjust to the pandemic and find new ways to serve you. Our online library is always open 24/7 at www.RVALibrary.org.“
