Library Reopening with Guidelines
Please read the message below for details~
As Illinois begins moving into "Phase IV" of its plan to reopen, RVDL is also looking to move forward. We have now reopened to the public for our normal business hours. Patrons are asked to wear a mask and observe current social distancing guidelines (keeping 6 feet between yourself and others) while in the Library. Public computers are available for use. Appointments are encouraged to reserve a computer and any computers not reserved will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Patrons are asked to limit their time to one hour on the computers. We encourage people who may be "at-risk" to call prior to coming in to check our current occupancy. We will still be offering curbside service and virtual programs. We hope to continue to serve our patrons in a safe manner and look forward to seeing everyone again!
