ROSEBURG, OR – Patrons can start visiting Roseburg Public Library again when the building reopens Tuesday, Nov. 23.

Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 30, library hours will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. That schedule will continue for the foreseeable future.

Patrons are asked to limit their visits to one hour. Masks or face coverings must be worn inside the building at all times.

Public computers, WiFi and printing services will be available.

Meeting rooms will not be available. Library staff will not accept reservations for future meeting room use.

Library-sponsored programs will remain virtual and will be held either via Facebook at or via Zoom.

Patrons also may use the contactless drive-up pickup service, which will be available during all hours the library is open to the public.
