The City of Santa Maria is reviewing reopening plans for various department, including the public library.
The library building has been closed to the public for the past six months and is expected to remain that way for a while longer.
The City says after reviewing the most recent reopening plan for the library, larger germ shields were ordered, but due to supplier backlogs, it’s unknown when they will arrive.
Once installed, the City says the shields will help protect both staff and the public.
The library is still offering sidewalk pickup and an over-the-phone book club, among other things.
The City says the library is also preparing to launch its new bookmobile soon.
A specific re-opening date for the library has yet to be announced.
