Shreve Memorial Library is expanding operating hours and services available for patrons beginning Monday, September 28, as the library moves into Phase III of reopening. Since reopening in June, Shreve Memorial Library branches throughout Caddo Parish have been operating under modified hours and limited services. Beginning Monday, libraries will resume pre-pandemic business hours and limited use of study rooms.
Shreve Memorial Library branches are currently open with limited services including curbside delivery, quick browsing and checkouts, computer access, reference and Readers’ Advisory, and printing and faxing services. Browsing and computer use is limited to one hour only. All visitors to library branches over the age of two must wear a face mask to enter the library, and face masks are required at all times while in the library. No eating or drinking is allowed, and the amount of people allowed in each branch varies based on occupancy limits and social distancing guidelines.
Beginning Monday, September 28, patrons under the age of 10 will not be permitted without a responsible person. This is a change to the current age requirement, which states that patrons age 15 and younger are not permitted without an adult age 18 or older.
Additionally, all full-time Shreve Memorial Library branches, with the exception of the Main Branch located in downtown Shreveport, will be open Monday through Wednesday 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. starting Monday, September 28.
