Staff members are also taking measures to ensure library safety by having a quarantine room. The room involves the sanitizing of resources that have been used or touched by patrons.

Staff members are excited to be open to the public once again. Jackson-George Regional Library System Director Lori Barnes said, “And we’re just dependable. We are here to serve all kinds of needs in our communities. Our constituency here in Jackson-George County depends on us for that. So to be able to take a step in the direction of re-opening fully is a really great thing.”

The staff of Jackson-George Regional Library System is asking that you call your library branch to schedule an appointment.
