County Libraries Reopen
April 8, 2021
LA County Library announce it will reopen 30 of its 85 libraries for select in-person service beginning April 19.
“With Los Angeles County entering the orange tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, libraries have been cleared to safely reopen at 50% capacity, while also maintaining 6-feet of physical distance for customers,” said the Library in a statement.
“In preparation for reopening its doors to the public, LA County Library is working diligently to ensure safety protocols are met and appropriate preventative measures are in place.”
“LA County Library’s reopening is part of a phased reopening plan that prioritizes library openings based on geographic location, building availability, and the ability to accommodate physical distance guidelines and Public Health protocols.”
The first phase of the Library’s reopening will begin on April 19. Participating libraries are mostly in underserved neighborhoods of LA County, to promote equity.
