The Ypsilanti District Library is preparing for a soft reopening.
Starting June 15th, residents will be able to return books at all branches, but only through the dropbox service. Library staff will also return to work in-person that day, but for now, they will work in four-hour rotating shifts to meet social distancing guidelines. Lisa Hoenig is the director of the Ypsilanti District Library and says curbside pickup service will be offered at the Whittaker branch in the near future.
Lisa Hoenig: The staff would pull the materials people have put on hold either by placing a request from our library catalog online or by calling and requesting the materials.
The library has extended the due date for all books until July 1st. No late fees will be charged for books checked out pre-COVID-19.
