An Important Message From Bellaire Public Library

Library Reopening

Beginning Monday, June 8th, 2020, the Bellaire Public Library is set to reopen to the public.


How are we addressing safety?

  • We ask that all visitors wear a face covering in the library and practice social distancing.
  • We will be limiting the number of patrons in the library at one time.
  • We highly encourage you to call ahead or request materials through our website.
  • Designated hours for the elderly and vulnerable populations are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 AM to 11 AM

How Have Things Changed?

  • We have marked the floor with social distancing guides and placed a shield at the circulation desk for your safety and the safety of staff.
  • All library materials that are returned will be quarantined for 72 hours then cleaned and made available for checkout. Please use the box in the foyer to return items.
  • The number of computers as been reduced to allow for social distancing. Public computers are by appointment only.
  • All in-person programs and use of meeting spaces are suspended.
  • High-touch surfaces will be cleaned at regular intervals.
  • We do ask that you limit the time you spend in the library to allow equal access to everyone.


We thank you for your support and hope you stay healthy and safe.
