Washington County Free Library Reopening September 21
In the next phase of Washington County Free Library’s gradual reopening beginning Monday, September 21, branch libraries throughout the county will welcome patrons back for browsing the stacks to find library materials, public computer use, and other limited in-person services during modified business hours.
The main Fletcher Branch Library in Hagerstown will be open to the public from 2-6 PM Monday through Friday. A full listing of branch library hours is available on the library website, washcolibrary.org. A limited number of patrons will be allowed enter library buildings. Some areas of the library buildings are “staff only” at this time.
Patrons ages five and over must wear face coverings that completely cover the mouth and nose at all times, and practice social distancing in all WCFL branch libraries. Public printing and technology assistance from library staff processes have been adjusted wherever possible to limit exposure to frequently touched surfaces and maintain social distancing.
Library materials are still available for checkout through curbside pickup services. Curbside pickup services at the Fletcher Branch Library will continue Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 AM-2 PM, and Tuesday and Thursday from 2-6 PM.
Returns throughout the county will only be accepted through book drops. All returned items are quarantined for 120 hours before going back into circulation.
The health and safety of Washington County Free Library customers and staff continue to be of utmost importance. WCFL has been diligent in following the advice of our federal, state, and local public health officials to efficiently and safely serve the Washington County community.
