Atlantic City Library Reopening to the Public Beginning July 22nd


Both Atlantic City Free Public Library locations – Main Library and Richmond Branch Library – will reopen to the public in July. Per Gov. Phil Murphy’s Executive Order, capacity at the libraries will be capped at 25 percent.


JULY 22nd

The Main Library

1 N. Tennessee Avenue

Will be open 10 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, effective July 22.


JULY 28th

The Richmond Branch

4115 Ventnor Avenue

Will be open 10 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m. on Tuesdays, as of July 28.


The split hours of operation will give library staff an opportunity to increase its level of cleaning, particularly of high-traffic areas and high-touched surfaces.


Staff members and customers are required to wear masks. The library is taking several other safety measures, including:

  • The installation of plexiglass at the service desks

  • Added hand sanitizer stations

  • Temperature checks for staff and customers

  • Increased distance between public computers

  • The continuation of virtual programs and the curbside pickup service.

“Library staff have worked hard to get us to this walkthrough phase in our reopening process,” Library Director Robert Rynkiewicz said. “Our staff members are looking forward to welcoming members back to the library in this new normal.”
