Paris Public Library
Under the guidelines and protocols issued by Governor Abbott, the Paris Public Library will observe the 50% of occupancy guideline, so we ask for your patience as we limit the number of patrons in the library during this transition back to operations. We ask that our patrons entering the library limit their time in the building, maintain social distancing, wear face coverings, and wash or disinfect their hands upon entering the building. If they have signs or symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath of difficulty breathing we ask that they remain at home for their well-being and the community. The curbside book service will continue to be available. You may call (903) 785-8531 or email email@example.com to request items for checkout.
Additionally, access to the public computers will be limited to one hour of use per patron per day and four patrons at any one time. Reservations for computer use may be made by calling the library at (903) 785-8531.
