Peoria Public Library Phase 1 Reopening

Library: Peoria Main & Sunrise Mountain Libraries
Date: Monday, May 18, until further notice.

The city of Peoria is looking forward to seeing everyone again as we safely begin to reopen! The city has developed a three-phased plan for gradually reopening city buildings, facilities and programs to the public during the corona-virus (COVID-19) pandemic. Phase One goes into effect Saturday, May 16, 2020. This plan follows federal and state guidance for reopening, including hygiene, sanitation and physical distancing protocols. As the plan rolls out starting May 16th, COVID-19 trends and data will be evaluated to determine long-term implementations and programming.

Beginning Monday, May 18, Peoria Public Libraries will offer limited lobby services, item requests, internet access and curbside pick-up of reserved books. Patron time in the lobbies will be limited to 15 minutes and will operate with social distancing protocols, enhanced cleaning frequencies and service-point protection barriers in place.

Free Practice Driving Tests and Materials

Library: Peoria Main & Sunrise Mountain Libraries

Peoria Public Libraries in partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, offers free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.

 

Attention: The Culture Pass program has been temporarily suspended due to public health concerns. Please check back for further updates.
