Mask use inside City facilities

The CDC and Dallas County Health & Human Services continue to stress the importance of wearing masks when social distancing is not possible. To maintain a safe work environment, the City will continue safety protocols that require the wearing of masks by both employees and members of the public during visits to City facilities. Signage at City facilities directing mask wearing remains in place. 

COVID 19 and Library Services

In-person outdoor Story Times will resume on Friday, May 7. In-person Adult programming (limited to 12-15 people a session) will resume on Tuesday, May 18. Note: Due to having to schedule performers well in advance, this summer's slate of Wednesday presentations for our annual Summer Reading programing will all be virtual. Library Meeting Room reservations have also resumed, but only for groups that are interested in dates in mid-August 2021 and beyond.

The University Park Public Library provides a wide variety of services for the community from toddler to senior citizen.  Library staff is committed to customer service and to meeting the educational and leisure-time needs of our patrons.  We welcome the opportunity to assist those who visit with their search for materials and we look forward to working with patrons to satisfy questions and research needs.
