Crete Public Library Board member Jim Chroust, front, and three others sit at computer workstations that will open to the public on July 1. The workstations will be blocked off from the rest of the library to control access. Workstations will be regularly cleaned and sanitized after use.

On July 1, the Crete Public Library will open its doors to the public for computer access.

There are four computer workstations in the front entrance of the library for public use.

-       Face covering is required and must be worn at all times. If you don't have a face covering, a mask will be provided.

-       No access will be available to restrooms or the drinking fountain.
