JMRL extends hours and building options – Tier 2

The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library will be extending hours and in-building options at many of its locations starting Monday, May 17. Appointments will no longer be necessary, and contactless curbside/drive-up options for materials pick-up will continue at all locations.

As part of the move to Tier 2 of JMRL’s COVID-19 response plan, there will be capacity and visit time limits at all branches and all programs and events will remain virtual. The Bookmobile will be offering limited services.

Patrons are encouraged to limit their visit to two hours and will be required to wear masks and abide by social distancing guidelines inside library buildings.

According to JMRL Director David Plunkett, “The last few months of Tier 3 appointment services have been tremendously busy at JMRL. The people of Albemarle, Charlottesville, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson place a very high value on their library service, and JMRL is glad to be able to safely offer more options for access in Tier 2.”

Public computer use and self-serve printing will be available.

No food or drink will be allowed in the library and patrons should continue to use book drops to return books.

JMRL’s Tier 3 services and updated hours

**Updated January 5, 2021

As JMRL continues to work with local health authorities and provide important services to the community, the Library has announced its plans to move into Tier 3 limited in-branch appointment services and curbside services.

Library Director, David Plunkett, said the changes to each branch reflect careful consideration of current COVID-19 data, consultation with local government partners, and also the needs of the individual communities.

“JMRL has worked hard to be able to re-open some doors, and is looking forward to the opportunity to serve the community,” Plunkett said.

It’s important to note that curbside and appointment services will not always both be available at the same time and patrons should contact their local branch with any questions.
