Libraries around the world face difficult challenges when deciding what services to offer for their visitors and how to comply with their visitors’ needs. In many countries, libraries are temporarily closed, some are restricting their services. Governments have different approaches: while some oblige all libraries to close, others state that the work must continue. There are also those who allow libraries to make their own decisions.
