Library patrons will not be required to wear a mask, per the governor's recent executive order prohibiting mask mandates for public buildings.
Once reopened, many library services available prior to March 2020 will be offered again, including the use of study rooms for up to two hours at a time, test proctoring, the acceptance of cash and the availability of 3-D printers for use at certain locations.
“We’ve missed all of our patrons, and we know how important Fort Bend County’s libraries are to their daily lives,” Library Director Clara Russell said. “As we reopen, we will combine our traditional ways of doing things with some of the virtual elements we’ve adopted over the past year. Many people like to browse our collections in person, while others appreciate the convenience of placing a hold on materials by phone or online through our catalog and picking them up with our curbside pickup service.”
The Books and More Curbside Pick-Up service will continue to be offered at all Fort Bend Library locations.
