COVID-19 Update 8/13/21

Nobody enjoys wearing them.
We just want to say that upfront.

Given the current COVID-19 trending numbers in our county, we are going to heed the advice of our state and the CDC, and require masks inside the library and the Community Room for the foreseeable future.

Our Carnivale on August 20 is slated to proceed as planned, but social distancing along with masks inside the Community Room will be in effect. We ask that everyone help us to uphold this safety measure for the good of our community.
