Local libraries plan to expand services according to Gov. Greg Abbott's reopening Texas executive order.

In Cedar Park and Leander, library patrons can pick up and drop off books at both public libraries. Neither library is reopening inside rooms or spaces.

Cedar Park Public Library staff will have curbside pickup for holds and drop-off for returnable materials on Mondays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, according to the library website. Material holds can be made online.

Starting May 5, the Leander Public Library will have in-person drop-off and pickup at the library’s main entrance, according to a city release. Material reservations can be made online or by phone.
