The North Branch will be opened in LIMITED CAPACITY on Tues., April 9.  You will be able to browse items in the lobby, use the café, and check out holds. If you require further items from inside the library, a staff member will need to assist you.  We hope to be able to open the building fully very soon and will keep you updated.
