PUEBLO — Libraries in Pueblo will open its doors once again to the public this week as the Pueblo City-County Library District begins its reopening process.

The district announced all libraries will reopen Friday for the first phase, which will allow the public to use library computers for a 45-minute session on a reservation basis.

Computers will be available for use at all branches between noon and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, while visitors can only use the computers from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Reservations can be made up to three days in advance using the library district's website. You can make a reservation by clicking "Library Service" and selecting "Computer Reservations."

The second phase begins one week after that and will allow visitors to "browse for library materials." During this time, library patrons will have to make a reservation and have 30 minutes to look for materials.

A mask will be required to wear at all times and those using the library will be asked to practice social distancing. Anyone who enters a library location will have to provide contact information that state health agencies can use in the event of an outbreak.
