The Haverhill Public Library is reopening to the public today with restrictions.
The library is now open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for those making appointments by telephone in advance. Appointments will last a maximum of 45 minutes. Walkups will be accommodated if possible.
The Childrens’ Room will not be open due to safety concerns, but a small browsing collection of youth services materials is available on the first floor. Officials say masks covering the nose and mouth are required for anyone 2 years of age or older and must remain on for the duration of visit. Masks are available for those who do not have one.
For those considered high risk, library staff ask that they schedule a time between 9 and 10 a.m., Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Fewer people will be allowed in during those hours. Curbside pickup remains available and the preferred option. There’s more at haverhillpl.org or by calling 978-373-1586.
