Centralia Library getting back to the books

Posted on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at 6:49 am

The Centralia Library is once again, open for business.

The hours are being walked back to normal, and there is a 25-person capacity limit, but the books are back.

The comeback includes the summer reading program and community garden as well.

Amy Hopkins, library director, said she has been in the library every business day during the shut-down taking care of correspondence, writing grants and paying bills.

“It was very quiet,” she said, “we’re just really happy to be open.”

She said the plan is to resume the normal schedule Monday, June 1.

*Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, the library will be open, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

* Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, it will be open. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays 1-4 p.m. “Curbside service and in-town porch deliveries will still be available,” Hopkins said.
