IONIA — The Ionia Community Library is reopening on Wednesday, June 10.


The ICL, 126 E. Main St., announced Thursday, June 4, that it would be reopening to the public. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on June 1 rescinded her stay-at-home order and lifted some of the restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Procedures will be in place to keep people safe, according to the ICL. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The library is closed Sunday.


The ICL advises visitors to enter only from Library Street.


There will be only 20 patrons at any time allowed in the Hall-Fowler building, said ICL Director Dale Parus.


Contactless curbside returns at ICL are offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, June 8, and Tuesday, June 9. Material can be returned at the Library Street corners of Main Street and Washington Street. Staff will be present to greet people from a distance and to practice social distancing.
