In addition, the Pinole Library, which has been serving as a COVID-19 test site since May 2020, will open on July 6. On the same day, the Rodeo Library will reopen. The Crockett Library reopens July 7. Both the smaller Rodeo and Crockett libraries have been operating with front door service due to social distancing guidelines.

 

The County has increased the number of base hours it funds at each library from 35 to 40, which increases open hours at eight libraries. Another nine libraries have boosted hours thanks to funding from city partners, the County said.

“In total, libraries will be open an additional 121 hours per week, 16.5 hours more per week than before the pandemic began,” the County said.
