VESPASIAN WARNER LIBRARY RETURNS TO IN-PERSON SERVICES
Browse for Books, Movies, and More Inside the Library
CLINTON, January 19, 2021 – The Vespasian Warner Public Library District in Clinton announces a return to in-person services on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. The main floor, children’s floor, and periodicals room will be open to the public while the rest of the building remains closed during this phase. Visitor capacity is limited to 25 people and masks are required.
The library had been operating with a curbside model since November 20. “Our goal is always to provide as many library services as possible to the community,” said Bobbi Perryman, Executive Director of the library. “Curbside allowed us to quickly meet the needs of individuals and families, but we are excited to see everyone inside the building again.”
Library visitors may browse for and select their own books, audiobooks, movies, videogames, and magazines for check-out. Advance ordering and curbside pickup are still available for those wishing to speed up the check-out process. Popular services such as grab ‘n go kits, public computers, workspaces, fax, printing, copies, and lamination are also offered. Aside from the public access computers and workspaces, seating is not available inside the building. Multi-touch items such as newspapers and toys are not accessible at this time.
Current library hours are Monday-Thursday from 10am-7pm and Friday-Saturday from 10am-3pm and are subject to change. For more information about current services, visit www.vwarner.org or call 217.935.5174.
The Vespasian Warner Public Library District strives to be a welcoming place that meets the diverse needs of its communities through high-quality resources and supportive services to stimulate and facilitate creativity, curiosity and learning.
