Governor Chris Sununu announced on June 11 that the state is lifting the coronavirus stay-at-home order. He also released the Safer at Home COVID-19 Reopening Guidance for Libraries. This industry specific guidance recommends many protocols for safeguarding the staff and public during the coronavirus disease.
The staff and Trustees of the Bedford Public Library are working to ensure that the safety measures are in place before announcing a reopening date. Patrons are encouraged to continue to use the library’s virtual services, online databases and downloadable audiobooks and eBooks and the library’s contact-free pickup of physical materials. More information about our services can be found on our website or call us at 472-2300.
Contact-free pickup service has been extended to Wednesday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in addition to Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
We will continue to offer library services and programs remotely to the greatest extent feasible while preparing for the safe return of a limited number of patrons at a time to the building.
