Reduced hours start Aug 23, 2021

All three Juneau Public Libraries will have reduced hours starting Monday, August 23, as staff are reassigned to help with pandemic response. Juneau has been seeing a surge of COVID-19 cases in the community due to the highly transmissible Delta variant.   

As of Monday, August 23:

  • Downtown and Valley libraries are changing hours to 
    • Monday-Friday 12 – 6 p.m.
    • Saturday-Sunday 12 – 5 p.m.
  • Douglas library is changing hours to: 
    • Monday-Friday 3 – 6 p.m.
    • Saturday-Sunday 12 – 5 p.m.

Mitigation measures in place at the library, as well as other City and Borough of Juneau facilities, are adequate to prevent COVID-19 transmission; this temporary reduction is being made due to staffing shortages. Reduced library hours will allow library staff to be reassigned to the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), enabling increased capacity for COVID-19 testing and quarantine/isolation services for the community while COVID-19 is spiking.
