BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Butte County libraries opened up for the first time Tuesday since the shutdown.
The library is following county guidelines. They've implemented other health and safety measures like a time limit and shutting down all computers to minimize contact.
"We are following the state mandate to require people to wear masks,” said librarian, Janae Kambestad. “We're also asking people to limit their time in the library to 30 minutes or less. So we're only allowing people to browse and check out materials. We are not offering computers, we are not offering tables and chairs to sit and linger. We're still limiting the number of people in the building at a time. So here in Chico, we're limiting it to 50 people."
Social distancing is enforced. Hand sanitization stations are also set up. Chico, Biggs, Gridley, Durham, Oroville, and Paradise libraries opened up Tuesday.
A mask is required to enter all libraries in Butte County.
