PLEASE NOTE:
Masks are currently required in library spaces. 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.”
