LYNCHBURG — The Plexiglass is up. Masks are available and the Moore County Public Library is back in business.

According to Director of Library Service Peggy Gold, the Moore County Public Library (MCPL) is now re-opened for walk-in traffic, though she stressed that curbside services would remain available to those who still aren’t comfortable in public spaces. The library officially re-opened Monday, June 22 at 10 a.m.

Social distancing will still be encouraged. Those patrons returning materials should continue to do so at the outside book drop before entering the library so that staff can sanitize them before putting them back into circulation. Masks will also be available at the front entrance for those who prefer one and hand sanitizer, provided by Jack Daniel’s Distillery, is also available. B-Double-H Woodworks of Moore County also recently installed a Plexiglass guard at the front desk to protect both library staff and patrons.

To reserve materials for curbside pick up or for questions, call the library at 931-759-7285. •
