COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho — Several libraries across N. Idaho will reopen their doors on Monday, June 15 as the state transitions into stage 4 of its reopening plan.

Governor Brad Little announced Thursday that the state will transition to its final reopening stage starting on Saturday.

Every library in the Community Library Network will transition to normal operating hours come Monday. The Bookmobile will resume regularly scheduled stops and the Discovery Bus will begin scheduling activities.

Computers will be spaced six feet apart and study room capacity will be limited. Meeting rooms and donation area will remain closed for now.

Self-service curbside pickup is not mandatory, but will be available upon request. Additionally, staff will be required to wear masks and visitors are encouraged to do the same.

Throughout the remainder of June, children’s programs will continue to be available on Facebook Live and YouTube. Librarians have also assembled grab-and-go kids for take home projects.

The Community Library Network includes seven locations across N. Idaho and has more than 68,000 cardholders.
