As of April 26, the stacks are back at Maricopa County libraries on a limited basis, including the Goodyear and Litchfield Park branch libraries, as the library district moves into its next phase of reopening.

Seating, in-person events and in-library computer access are not yet available, but patrons can now browse the shelves in person during Pop-In Pickup and check out books and other items.

Capacity at the Goodyear library is limited to 49 and capacity at the Litchfield Park library is limited to 33.

Face masks are recommended at each facility, and staff will have disposable masks available for patrons who would like one.

All library staff members are required to mask up, according to the library website, mcldaz.org.

Chromebook and Wi-Fi hotspots to use at home may be checked out for up to three weeks by reserving them through the library’s catalog or calling 602-652-3000.

Mobile printing options also are available at the libraries.

Customers can upload files to an online printing portal and then stop into the library to print their queued documents using a kiosk.

Printing costs are 25 cents per black and white page, and 75 cents per color page. More details can be found at mcldaz.org/about/printing.

Digital library resources, online events and Book-A-Librarian services are still available.

For more information, visit the FAQs page at mcldaz.org, and follow the libraries' social media pages.
