San Antonio Public Library Announces Details of Re-Opening Plan

All San Antonio Public Library locations will begin contact-free pickup services and nine locations offer computer access on June 16

SAN ANTONIO (May 29, 2020) – San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) is resuming partial services on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, in accordance with the phased re-opening plan announced by City Manager Erik Walsh. The re-opening includes contact-free pickup services at all SAPL locations and limited public computer use at nine locations.

 

Contact-free pickup of reserved library books and materials at the Central Library and all branches will occur during specific service hours. Nine library branches will also offer access to public computers for one hour per user to allow for other users and disinfection after each computer use. Book drops will be reopened at all locations. SAPL will also offer expanded phone, chat, and online reference, increased outside Wi-Fi availability, expanded e-programming and online assistance.

 

The nine locations offering public computer accessibility by appointment only in addition to pickup services are Westfall, Carver, Schaefer, Mission, Pan American, Cortez, Johnston, Bazan and Collins Garden branches. These branches were selected in order to assist residents in areas of San Antonio with less internet and computer access. Residents can call each library location to schedule an appointment.

 

“We are looking forward to re-opening library locations for the community. We will continue to adapt operations to keep our employees and residents healthy and safe, while also bringing equitable access to the internet, digital materials and computers to the neighborhoods that need it most,” said Ramiro S. Salazar, Director of the San Antonio Public Library System.
