HERMISTONSustainable generosity

Bricks at the Hermiston Public Library display the names of donors who helped build it.

Libraries have now reopened for in-person visits in Hermiston and neighboring cities with slight modifications.

Some restrictions include limiting the number of people in the library at one time and adjusting hours.

Hermiston Public Library is only allowing entry through their back door and is limiting the number of people inside the building at a time. The library’s website states that curbside pickup will still be available for those not comfortable with going inside.

Hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. For more information contact 541-567-2882 or library@hermiston.or.us.

City Library in Umatilla reopened on Wednesday, June 10 and has also modified event schedules to limit gatherings. The library will continue with events, such as their summer reading programs and teddy bear workshops, but limit the amount of reservations available.

Library Director Kellie Lamoreaux said sign-ups are required and gatherings for events are limited.

“We’re not going to do anything big,” she said. “Only 10 people at a time for events.”

To sign up for Umatilla’s summer reading program, visit umatilla-city.org/library or call 541-922-5704.
