ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - After months of waiting, the Rockford Public Library swings open its doors for the general public.

Just like many organizations, the library system shut down its branches over concern of COVID-19. As part of the reopening, new rules needed to be set. Face coverings and social distancing are a must inside the buildings. No more than 50 people are allowed inside at any given time.

Meeting rooms are also closed for now and some furniture is sectioned off so customers know it’s not a place to hang out and linger.

You will need your library card or reciprocal library card number in order to check out materials.
