The Buda Public Library will be opening to the public with limited grab-and-go service starting June 1 in addition to its curbside and phone services.

Readers in Buda who plan to take advantage of the limited service are strongly encouraged to wear face masks and practice social distancing, according to a May 26 press release sent by the city.

The library will be open at limited capacity, allowing only 30 people at a time—visitors are encouraged to keep their visit brief.

Readers with a library card will be able to use computers by appointment only but will be limited to one-hour sessions. The use of computers will also be limited for specific and necessary tasks, and users will need to know how to use the computer without staff assistance to maintain social distancing.

All programs and storytimes will be offered virtually. In addition, summer reading logs and supplies will be available for curbside pickup.

For readers returning books, they will have to be returned through the outdoor book drop. No returns will be accepted inside, and no late fees will be accrued until after June 16.


Grab-and-go service—Mon.-Thu. 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 1-5 p.m.

Curbside pickup—Mon. 10 a.m.-noon, Thu. 3-5 p.m.
