The Maricopa Public Library will reopen Monday with restrictions in place as some member services return at Copper Sky.

Access to the library will be limited – at least initially – to 20 patrons, who will be required to follow social distancing guidelines during visits intended to be brief, the city announced. It will close periodically daily so staff can sanitize the facility.

Visitors will be able to browse collections as well as access computer printing services. Curbside service will continue to be available as well.

The library will operate under normal business hours: Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is closed on Sunday.

Monday will also mark the return of some member services discontinued during the coronavirus lockdown, the city said.

Group Exercise classes, including Silver Sneakers classes will resume with limited capacity and formats. Classes will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Members must check in for the class at the front desk.

Child Watch and CW Leap services will resume on a first-come, first-served with limited capacity and reduced time per visit.

All exercise equipment types will be available – including free weights.

With the return of these services, all membership billing will resume during the month of June, according to the city’s announcement. Billing dates will be determined by the member’s initial join date. Members may choose to suspend their membership for up to three months at this time and will not be charged. Additional information regarding member services will be shared via email with members and on the Copper Sky Facebook page.
