The Library has updated its programming attendance requirements.  Face coverings optional but highly encouraged in group indoor settings.  Face covering requirements are subject to change without notice.  Registration may be required for in-person programming.  If registration is required, registrants will need to register all members of their party.  To provide for adequate social distancing, the Library may need to limit the number of in-person attendees at each indoor program.  The Library will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and the Library Board will review these requirements on a monthly basis.
