All five KPL locations will again allow patrons into its buildings beginning June 1.

For the past six weeks, the library has been offering curbside service, with many other services being made available online. Those services will continue for the foreseeable future.

The library will have safety precautions in place. For the time being, patrons will be expected to wear masks regardless of vaccination status. The library will also allow only 50% capacity.
