Are masks required inside?

No. As of Tuesday, May 18, masks are optional inside the library. We ask all library users to use their discretion. Don't feel shy about wearing a mask if that is the best choice for you.

We are optimistic about the direction of the pandemic, but we also understand that there are different points of view on how to best handle re-opening. We are always open to feedback and we take the opinions of our community seriously.

How can you help our community & help us return to normal faster?

Get vaccinated.
