The Stephenson Memorial Library in Greenfield extended its hours and is now back to pre-pandemic hours, director David Bridgewater said. Currently, patrons can enter the library to check out books and use computers. Residents wishing for more brief interactions can request titles in advance and pick them up, bagged and already checked out, from the counter inside, he said. Patrons are being asked to do their own check-ins and check-outs otherwise, he said, to minimize staff contact with the materials before they’ve been quarantined for three days. Masks are required inside.

There are no library events currently scheduled, but the library hosted a program with Wings of the Dawn Wildlife Rescue at Oak Park a couple weeks ago, Bridgewater said.

The library is now open on Mondays from 10 to 2, Tuesday hours have changed from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday hours have extended and are now 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hours on other days remain unchanged: the library is open on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
