For Immediate Release
CRRL Expanding Services with Library Express
Fredericksburg, Virginia, October 1, 2020 - Central Rappahannock Regional Library will open branches to the public for 45-minute appointments starting Monday, October 12.

Our new Library Express service enables us to expand branch access to the public while prioritizing customer and staff safety. Customers will be able to make appointments to browse the collection; check out materials; use computers to print, copy, scan, and fax; and checkout materials. Beginning Monday, October 12, customers will also be able to return items to our bookdrops 24/7.

Masks covering face and nose, and temperature checks will be required, and staff will wear gloves when handling materials. Appointments are limited to 45 minutes, and everyone will be asked to maintain 6 feet physical distance. For everyone's safety, customers should not visit a branch if they have a fever, symptoms of COVID-19, or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the preceding 14 days.

Customers will be able to schedule a visit beginning Saturday, October 10 at or by phone starting Monday, October 12.

The very popular curbside pickup service will continue, so customers will not need to enter a branch to pick up their materials.
