Williston Community Library continues phased re-opening

Library Regular Hours-InstaWILLISTON, N.D. – Beginning Monday, May 3, the Williston Community Library will resume normal operating hours and will introduce additional modifications to library operations.

“We are excited to begin operating at a somewhat normal pace again,” emphasized Library Director, Andrea Placher. “Being open these additional hours will allow our community to utilize the library’s services more conveniently.”

“We truly appreciate our patrons and their understanding through these trying times. This past year has brought challenges our way, but it has also created opportunities for growth and forced us to think of new and innovative ways to deliver library services.”

Normal operating hours for the Williston Community Library are:

Monday – Thursday | 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Friday | 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday | 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

The following modifications will be introduced as part of the library’s reopening:

  • Face coverings are strongly encouraged for any patrons entering the library but are required by patrons needing computer assistance.
  • Appointments are no longer needed.
  • Study cubicles are open and available.
  • Books are no longer being quarantined and normal check-out limits will resume.

Indoor seating is available but remains limited. Curbside pickup and all online and virtual programs will continue.

A virtual Summer Reading Program will be offered in June and July with limited outdoor programming available. Please follow the Williston Community Library on Facebook and Instagram (@willistoncommunitylibrary), for future program updates.

All areas will continue to be sanitized and the Community Room will remain closed throughout the summer for remodeling.
