Masks Required in Library Spaces

Update (May 5): Masks are currently required in library spaces as per our Temporary Safe Practices Policy. We will continue to provide masks to visitors who don’t have one. Children two years of age and younger are not required to wear a mask.

As per our policy, if the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels tool lists Columbia County as “medium” or higher levels, or if the local schools are operating under a mask mandate, we require mask-wearing in library spaces. The tool currently lists Columbia County as “High.”

We will communicate any changes to masking guidelines on the website and on library signage.

Our updated policy is available here.

If you require an accommodation to our policy, please contact our library director at or by phone 518-828-1792 x102.
