The Hoboken Library is continuing with the next steps of a gradual re-opening this week. Below is an update provided by the library:
The next step in the Library’s phased reopening is welcoming the public for computer appointments. This is in addition to the Library’s current Curbside Pickup and Library by Mail services. Starting Wednesday, July 22, customers will be able to use Library computers on the Library’s second floor. The computer area has been reconfigured to maximize computer use while still maintaining social distancing and COVID-19 safety protocols.
On Monday, July 20, Hoboken Library Card holders can call the Library at 201-420.2346 to make a computer appointment. Appointments last for one hour, and are available Monday through Thursday from 10:30am – 11:30 am; 12 pm – 1 pm; 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm; and 4 pm – 5 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays, appoints are available from 10:30 am – 11:30 am; 12 pm – 1 pm; 2 pm – 3 pm, and 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm. The half-hour periods between appointments are used by the Library staff to sanitize the computers and work stations.
To enter the Library for your appointment, please line up – maintaining social distancing – outside the front door on Fifth Street, along the marked path. Computer access is only available to adults 18 years old and older; only one person will be allowed at each computer at a time. All library users are required to wear masks to enter the building, and to wear masks at all times while in the building. Social distancing will be enforced, and patrons will not be allowed to move the furniture. Library staff will monitor the use of equipment from a distance of 6 feet away.
