No specific time was given for reopening, but is determined on the availability of appropriate PPE for staff and guidelines for customers. 

CML will provide advance notice and specifics of locations and services as soon as possible.  

Recently, it was announced Battelle would be helping museums and libraries to safely re-open to the public.

Until then, the closure of all 23 library locations will continue.
