Computer usage will also be available with a 30-minute time limit.

Library buildings will observe limited occupancy at all locations during this time to support social distancing guidelines by local and state officials. These occupancy numbers will be based on the individual size of each library. However, due to the limited number of people in the building, we ask that customers keep their stay short so others can access the library as well. We will be practicing social distancing and encourage customers to wear masks while inside our spaces.TCCL is taking extra precautions to keep customers and staff safe during this pandemic as we work to reopen our buildings. All materials returned to our libraries are placed in a 72-hour quarantine before being checked in and made available for other customers.
