After closing to normal traffic for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Grand County Public Library in Moab is open to the public again, no appointment needed. The Moab building has resumed normal hours of operation. Both the Moab and the Castle Valley Branch will continue to provide curbside services.

The Moab building offered appointments for the public to browse the shelves or access computers for most of the past year. Staff worked to address community needs for technology by doubling the amount of mobile hotspots and laptops available on loan and improved the library’s wireless internet signal so the public could use the internet access from outside the building.

“Wi-fi hotspots proved to be the most requested items as many patrons relied on the mobile connectivity to work and study from home during the pandemic,” a statement from the library read.

“For fully vaccinated individuals, face masks are no longer required inside the building, although social distancing measures are still encouraged,” a statement announcing the opening advised.

Hours for the Grand County Public Library Moab Branch are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit www.moablibrary.org for more information or call the library at 435-259-1111
