The city marked the occasion at branches of Arlington, La Sierra and Orange Terrace with a Fiction Fan Fest promotion that encouraged people to dress up as their favorite fictional characters, said Erin Christmas, director of the Riverside Library.

Hayden Birkett, director of the library at Orange Terrace, said the kids dressed up as Firemen, Spider-Man, Minnie Mouse and Anna from the “Frozen” movies.

Four more branches in Arlanza, Casa Blanca, Eastside and Marcy reopened on May 4, Christmas announced. She wasn’t sure when the new downtown main library will open, but it will be soon.

Branch libraries are now open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

The curbside pick-up service is available from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
