Now that Windsor-Essex is once again in the red, the Windsor Public Library is slowly restoring some services.

Patrons are still not allowed to explore the stacks or attend in-person programming. However, now that restrictions are lifting to a degree, they can access computers and photocopying.

Anyone who wants to borrow materials will still have to use the curbside and drop-off services.

As of Thursday, the public will be able to access computers and the internet on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are no appointments, and those who go should expect a wait.

Hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Sunday hours resume at the Budimir, Central, and Riverside Branches on February 28, and on March 1, normal business hours resume at all branches.
