After halting in-person visits in early 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Dare County’s three libraries, (which includes the Hatteras Library in Hatteras village), reopened their buildings to the public on Monday, April 19.
The buildings are now open for browsing, borrowing, and other services, with in-library services available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Curbside services, which have been extremely popular, will also continue to be available for library patrons on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with no indoor services on these days.
The public should note that in-person visits also include the following COVID-19-related restrictions:
- Face masks are required, per North Carolina’s statewide mandate
- Social distancing is required
- Visitors are asked to limit their library visits to 30 minutes or less.
- Computer users will be limited to one single computer session per day.
- Seating is available but is limited.
For library locations with meeting rooms, there will still be no meeting room use at this time, and there are also no in-person library programs currently available.
