COVID cases in Orange close libraries again
Orange County Public Libraries returned on Wednesday to curbside only services due to recent spikes in COVID-19 community spread.
Hours of operation will mostly remain the same all three branches – Main Branch in the town of Orange, Gordonsville Branch and Wilderness Branch, according to a county news release.
Customers can receive multiple curbside services including checkout of library materials, activation of a new library account (Bring a photo ID and proof of address), payment of library fines affecting card status and printing of materials submitted to the library through its PrinterOn service.
To find resources or suggestions for materials, see http://www.ocplva.org/search-assist/. Library staff is also available to help customers select books and other materials to place on hold.
The return of library materials will continue to be through the library’s book returns only with materials quarantined for seven days before being checked in by library staff. Items remain checked out on a customer’s account while resting in quarantine and check-in is backdated to account for the delay.
