Library Service Roadmap

Library-Service-RoadmapRegarding Masks

Beginning July 1, 2021, masks are optional for fully vaccinated people.

CDC Guidelines recommend masks if you are not vaccinated.

Masks and hand sanitizer are available inside.

Social distancing is encouraged and plexiglass dividers are in place.

Your safety is important to us! Thank you for using your library.

In an abundance of caution, please note that care will be taken with children’s programming. Social distancing will be in place and masks optional and available. Children’s programs are held either outdoors or in meeting rooms during Summer Discovery and attendance is limited for safety.

Please remember that if you are unable to be vaccinated or to wear a mask, the Library will help by providing online help or telephone reference and non-contact pick up of materials, and/or allow a person to wear a full face shield that extends below the chin.

Please Note: Curbside Pickup will not be available at Brownlee Woods Library at this time.

What Are Hours and Capacity?

For safety sake, we will also need to limit the number of patrons that can be in the building at any one time. Social distancing will be in place. Each library has a limit of its own.
