DOVER, Del. (AP) - Officials have pushed back plans to reopen the Dover Public Library due to safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The library had been scheduled to reopen next week. Officials discussed the plan in a recent meeting and decided to revisit the reopening in September, Dover City Manager Donna Mitchell told the Delaware State News on Wednesday.

“COVID-19 has made all of us rethink our typical daily interactions with our community members and take safeguards for their protection and for the well-being of staff,” Mitchell said. “We just want to make sure it is safe for everyone when we reopen, so we do not have to close back up again,”

In the meantime, the library is expanding their hours for curbside pickups.
