AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Following the change in Amarillo’s Coronavirus Status Level Chart, the Amarillo Public Library announced they will return to regular hours of operation on Monday.

The library will continue to provide curbside service from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Staff encouraged anyone unconformable entering the library or unwilling to wear a mask to use this service.

Starting Monday, the library said it will also resume reservations to rent library meeting rooms.

The library is still considering whether or not they will be offering in-person events in the near future.

“Many of our patrons are eager for a return to in -person events, and so are we,” said Director of Library Services Amanda Barrera. “In the past, we have rarely had to restrict program attendance, but maintaining appropriate safety measures may require that as we go forward.”

Barrera said staff will consider offering multiple sessions for upcoming summer programs, such as Amarillo Reads, where a large attendance is normal.
