Easing its way out of the pandemic of 2020-2021, the Red Bank Public Library began allowing visitors into the West Front Street institution for the first time in more than a year Monday.
The new reality, however, requires appointments, masks, limits on usage and self-checkouts, among other limitations.
The library is now open by appointment, and to some walk-ins, depending on availability, during two- and three-hour blocks, Monday through Friday.
Visitors must wear masks and sanitize their hands before accessing computers or using “browse-‘n-go”services. And visits are limited to one hour.
The Children’s Room and Local History Room remain off-limits to visitors.
Saturdays remain a curbside-pickup-only day, however, with no visitors allowed inside. Curbside delivery of holds or patron-requested printing is available during all library hours.
