Corvallis Public Library Reopens

The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library has announced that they will finally fully reopen after over a year. The library closed on March 14 of last year, following the outbreak of COVID-19.

In a statement sent out via email, Library Director Ashlee Chavez thanked the community for their support and announced that the library will be reopening its doors effective immediately.

“I am excited to share with you that all library locations are now open again, with no restrictions,” Chavez said. “Library hours are the same as they were before the pandemic, and we are gradually returning to in-person events.”

Since its closure, the library has shifted to remote services such as book delivery, which Chavez announced will still be available moving forward.

“I am happy to say that delivery is still an option!” Chavez said. “We encourage you to continue using this service if you enjoy it.”

The Corvallis Library will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
