Saturday Hours Returning and 2 New Branches to Open
Saturday hours will return April 10 for both in-person limited services and curbside only libraries as a first step in renewing six days a week library hours throughout the county, library officials announced Tuesday.
Libraries will be open Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm. Weekday hours continue to be Mondays from 10 am to 8 pm and Tuesdays-Fridays from 10 am to 6 pm.
The first phase of this round of re-openings will add Saturday in-person hours for the seven libraries now offering limited services – East Cobb, Mountain View, North Cobb, Sewell Mill, South Cobb, Vinings and West Cobb. Libraries currently offering only curbside service – Gritters, Kemp and Sibley - will expand the service to include Saturdays starting April 10.
The Stratton and Powder Springs libraries will offer curbside service only on Saturday, April 10, before expanding public access to in-person limited services Monday-Saturday on Monday, April 12.
Limited services enable the public to browse, check-out items, and use a limited number of public computers and other services.
The schedule for expansion to curbside services at the Switzer Library will be announced at a later date as the facility in downtown Marietta is under renovation, officials said.
Cobb County officials put in place coronavirus safety and health protocols throughout the year of the pandemic, including phased closures and reopening of libraries and grab-and-go curbside library services.
