Beatley Central Library reopens for Friday service — sort of

After a series of partial reopenings and reclosings, the Charles E. Beatley Jr. Central Library (5005 Duke Street) is scheduled to mostly reopen on Fridays, but with some coronavirus restrictions still in place.

The library will be open to the public starting this Friday, June 11, and will offer in-person services from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., though some things like reference services and passport services will be limited due to staffing shortages.

The reopening is just for the Beatley Central Library. The Barrett, Burke and Duncan branches are all still curbside-only service on Fridays.

The libraries across Alexandria have somewhat sporadic hours at present, with the Barrett and Burke branches open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday — and the Duncan branch open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

In addition to the new Friday hours, the Beatley Central Library is open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday.

The library also included a note that they will be closed next Friday, June 18, in observance of Juneteenth.

Masks are still required to be worn inside the library for anyone over five years old, and temperatures will be checked upon entering. No food or drink is allowed inside the library.

The press release said visitors are also only allowed to remain in the building for up to two hours of time on computers, and staff cannot provide technology assistance.
