Temporary Operating Procedures

Please note the following temporary operating procedures under our phased reopening effective the first week of June.

Main Library -

Opening for limited access starting June 3 by appointment only.  

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY - call 772-462-2370.
Monday through Thursday 9:00 - 5:00

Friday 9:00 - 4:30

Only people doing legal research will be admitted to the library.

Only five patrons can be in the library at a time.

Please request an appointment in advance to avoid being disappointed. We don’t want to turn anyone away at the door. Please call us at 772-462-2370.

Your time may be limited to one hour if other people are waiting. You are welcome to schedule another time.

We will follow screening procedures used by the courthouse. Patrons must answer a questionnaire before entering the library. 

The conference rooms cannot be reserved for meetings at this time. 

Patrons attending legal clinics must meet one-on-one with the attorney.  Family members or other interested parties must remain outside. Legal clinics can also be scheduled telephonically.

Upon entrance you must wear a face covering, sanitize your hands and maintain six-foot distancing from staff and other patrons. This is standard procedure throughout the courthouse now.

Attorneys can resume their normal after-hours privileges but still must sanitize their hands and wear a face covering. Please remember that you are not allowed to bring other people into the library.


South County Branch Hours:
