REDDING, Calif. – People can start getting back to the books. Starting next week, libraries in Shasta County will be back open for people just in time for summer vacation. But there will be restrictions in place.

Shasta County libraries will be limiting just how many people can be inside the building.

Only 100 people can be inside the Redding Library. The Anderson Library will only be allowing 20 people at a time, while the Burney Library will only be permitting 10 people. People will also only be allowed to spend one hour in the library.

But despite the precautions in place, people still cannot wait for the libraries to be back open.

“I love the library,” said David Zoll of Redding, “I’m interested to see what kind of safety measures are enforced.”

“We are actually very excited to see our public because we miss everyone,” said Elizabeth Kelley, assistant director of the Shasta County Public Libraries.

“Of course we're very excited to get books into people's hands.”

Library staff will also be wearing masks and gloves. The library says it plans to set up sneeze guards at the checkout desk.

The Shasta County Library is offering curbside services for people plans to continue those services once the library reopens, but on a limited basis.
