Some San Luis Obispo County library branches are back open for public browsing.
The branches have been doing curbside, drop-off and pick-up for books, but this is the first time the public is allowed inside since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
People are being asked to practice social distancing and take selected items home to read.
No seating areas are available in order to prevent people from being in the building for long periods of time.
Computer stations will be available for 20-minute sessions for those who need to access the internet.
The newly-opened branches include San Luis Obispo, Atascadero, Arroyo Grande, Nipomo, Cambria, Los Osos, and Morro Bay.
Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
From 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., the library is reserved for those considered “more vulnerable.”
