Service Updates

New Mask Policy: Effective Immediately!

We no longer require fully vaccinated visitors to wear masks indoors or out.

The Library follows CDC universal guidance which encourages those unvaccinated to continue to wear masks indoors and practice social distancing.

Due to the increased rates of vaccination and low rates of transmission within our community, we have also lifted capacity limits and visit lengths.

We will still ask visitors to sanitize upon entering. All shields, social distancing, and sanitizing protocols remain in place. Disposable masks will still be available for those who would like to wear one. We will continue to focus on indoor air quality and will keep our HVAC fresh air intake set to 100% and open doors whenever possible. Curbside service still available at the drive-thru window. Library staff will still be wearing masks (indoors) during their shift when in contact with library visitors.

We ask that you please respect everyone’s personal and private health choices. Providing our community a safe environment is our top priority. For those who are vaccinated, thank you for helping us get to the light at the end of this tunnel. For those who are unable to be vaccinated, we will continue to do what we can to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment at the library. And for those who have not yet been vaccinated, but are eligible, the following link includes resources for finding a local vaccination site: https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov

Please consider doing your part to help us put this pandemic in the rear view mirror.

Thank you for being respectful of others and wearing a mask if you are not fully vaccinated!
