Great news! New mask guidelines effective June 19, 2021


In accordance with the CDC May 2021 guidance, masks are discretionary for vaccinated individuals. Masks and social distancing are still required for all non-vaccinated individuals.

We are mindful that children under 12 have not had the option to be vaccinated and strongly recommend that those visiting the children’s area of the Library wear a face mask. Children 12 & under must wear a mask.

The plexiglass at the circulation desk will remain in place. Our staff has been vaccinated and will use a mask at their discretion.

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
