ALERT Dearborn Public Library is working to restore Library services, one step at a time

Providing curbside service to our residents is the first step in our phased re-opening. All patrons with holds on our shelves before we closed in March are being notified and scheduled for curbside pick-up. Beginning Friday, June 19, patrons will once again be allowed to place requests on library material. Curbside pickup will begin on Tuesday, June 23 at both Bryant and Esper. You will be notified when your requests are available and can make arrangements at that time for pickup. All proper safety protocols will be followed when providing these items to patrons. The Library is pleased to report that we are now receiving many new items and processing them into the library collection – so place your reserves!

Before more services become available and facilities reopen to the public, a careful plan to protect the safety and health of employees and residents must be in place and executed. Working in conjunction with City Administration, we are in the process of completing a COVID safety plan and will review our options for re-opening Bryant and Esper branches. Due to limits on building capacity, only a small number of patrons will be allowed into the building at one time and only for a short period of time.

The Library will post updates here at www.dearbornlibrary.org and through our social media channels.

Virtual library services have been provided throughout the pandemic and will continue for the foreseeable future. As more activities are allowed under the Governor’s directive, the Library will move forward purposefully, but with caution.

We understand you are anxious to return to the library and we are excited to resume serving the community. However, we want to keep everyone safe and healthy so we ask for your patience as we continue to prepare our staff and our buildings.
