Canyon Lake Library Won’t Reopen on May 1 but Curbside Service Resumes
Tye Preston Memorial Library (TPML) will not reopen to the public on Friday despite Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to reopen stores, libraries, museums, restaurants, movie theaters and malls at 25-percent of capacity.
Library Director Roxanna Deane said the library board and staff need time to plan, make critical decisions and consult with other libraries before she is comfortable reopening TPML.
“We will continue curbside service for the month of May as we look at how we could meet the guidelines,” she said. “Among our many concerns are how do we manage the flow of people into the building to maintain a 25-percent capacity? Given our open layout how do we effectively close off the indoor children’s play are as mandated in the guidelines? Who is going to frequently disinfect computers, doors, and bathrooms? How can we keep the staff safe?”
Curbside Service Resumes
Curbside service resumes and the book-drop opens on Friday, May 1.
Pickup schedule is 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Patrons are asked to reserve items online using their account at TPML.org. The library will notify individuals when their order is ready for checkout. Upon arrival, call 830-964-3733. Item(s) will be placed on the table near the front door of the library.
