Up to 20 people at a time will be allowed in University City Public Library starting March 23.
Patrons can browse books for an hour or use computers, but furniture that would allow lounging has been removed.
The library's Wi-Fi network has been extended and is accessible in the parking lot. Patrons also can send attachments to be printed by the library (email to email@example.com).
The library announced its plans in a news release Friday, saying all patrons and staff must wear masks in the building and that staff members will clean public computers after each use.
For now, the library has the same hours it used during curbside service: 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 1-5 p.m. Saturday. The library, at 6701 Delmar Boulevard, will be open 1-5 p.m. Sundays beginning April 11.
Library users may still use curbside service for items placed on hold.
Returned materials will be quarantined for 48 hours before staff members start to reshelve items.
