Back to Normal-ish!

  • Back to Normal-ish!
     

Now that Philly is lifting its COVID-19 restrictions, Jenkins will reopen to all visitors with no appointment necessary* on Monday, May 24! Our onsite hours will remain 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

We're still set up for social distancing, but the library stacks will now be open for browsing. We'll also eliminate book quarantining, plastic sleeves on PC keyboards, and the requirement to wear gloves. You'll again be able to rent conference rooms.

But we're not totally back to normal, so masks are still mandatory for everyone. And curbside book drop off and pickup will continue.

See you soon!

*If you are a self-represented litigant requiring divorce help, you need to call 215.574.1505 to set up an appointment with a reference librarian.
