On July 5th, it’s finally happening:
The JPL starts gradually re-opening its doors for in-person visits!

As of July 5, we’ll open by appointment for maximum 1-hour visits by patrons wanting to browse and borrow from our collections in the main library as well as in the Norman Berman Children’s Library. Finally, we are ready to welcome you back to take out books and materials from our collections … SAFELY, of course!

Curbside service will remain with modified hours. The Archives will be opening for a limited number of research appointments.
