Springfield-Greene County Library To Re-Open Drive Through Service

City of Springfield

Update:  The library district says that "due to additional steps required for reopening, drive-through window service will resume at five Springfield-Greene County Libraries at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, May 7, three days later than previously announced.   

The Springfield-Greene County Library is taking a step toward re-opening.  Starting Monday, May 4, five branches will resume drive-through window service.

The Library Center, Library Station, the Schweitzer Brentwood Branch and the Republic and Willard Branches will open their drive-through windows from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  Library patrons will be able to return items and pick up holds.  Staff and patrons will be required to maintain a six-foot distance.

Outdoor book drops at those locations will be open but only from 7:30 to 6 Monday through Saturday.

The library district closed all its branches on March 17 on orders of city and county government and health officials, according to a news release. 

Library officials say limited service could begin at a later date at the five other branches. 

Items returned will be quarantined for 24 hours before being given to patrons or put on shelves.

Anyone with questions for the library should call 417-882-0714.
