Roanoke Valley News

VINTON, Va. (WFXR) — The Vinton branch of the Roanoke County Library has reopened its doors to people again.

Before Monday, Nov. 30, people could only get curbside service for library materials.

Even though they are allowed inside now, there will be some restrictions. For example, patrons are required to wear masks and make a reservation for one-hour time slots inside the library.

However, people seem enthusiastic about being back inside the building.

“They are so happy to be able to go in and browse the books and to be able to touch the books and take what they want,” said Kimberly Burnette Dean, the Vinton Branch Manager. “It’s a little different looking online at a catalog and actually looking at the books themselves.”

The Vinton Branch Library is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be closed from 1 to 2 p.m. every day for cleaning.

Reservations can be made online or by calling the library at (540) 857-5043.
