Williamsburg Regional Library Activities This Week
Starting on Friday, January 15, 2021, WRL buildings will be closed until further notice – they are still offering curbside pickup, virtual programs, and even a new “quick picks” service where librarians will hand pick some items for you! Learn what’s available at wrl.org/comes-to-you. For COVID related updates and and library hours click here
WRL is offering touch-less curbside hold pickup on an appointment-only basis if you do not want to go in the library. Once you’re notified that your items are ready, choose a time and location at which to pick them up. It’s super easy! For more information on using this system go here.
