“People need the library,” said library assistant Lorenza Carpenter on Tuesday. Although the library isn’t quite open for people to come in and hang around, Carpenter said, “people can come in and get whatever they want.

“We’re starting very slow,” she said, adding she doesn’t know when hours of operation will be extended.

For now, the Meyer Memorial Branch is open from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, and for “Grab and Go” doorside service only from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 6 p.m. on Fridays.

The library is at 101 E. Sixth St. and it can be reached at 760-356-2385.
