PHOENIX — Public libraries in Glendale are set to reopen with full services and new operating hours on Monday following months of modified and limited offerings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the city announced.

All branches in the city will be closed this Friday through Sunday to prepare for the reopening, according to a press release.

Glendale libraries will be open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Social distancing is encouraged and the use of a face mask is welcomed, according to the release.

Library staff will also regularly sanitize public use equipment and computers, make touchless hand sanitizing stations available and continue popular virtual programming.

The main Glendale library at 5959 W. Brown St. and the Foothills Library at N. 57th Ave. will see physical changes to improve the customer experience by centralizing the service desks, according to the release.

Both libraries – as well as the Heroes Regional Park Library at 6075 N. 83rd Ave. and the Velma Teague Library at 7010 N. 58th Ave. – will also have concierge greeters, assistance at the checkout areas and roving customer service staff.

We want to hear from you.
