The Arms Library Is Revising Its Pandemic Protocols

The Arms is updating its COVID-19 browsing and inside access protocols. Yes, again. In light of this past week's announcements from the Governor's office, we are reconsidering all of our guidelines, particularly because we serve a mixed age population, including children who have not been vaccinated. The Governor's deadline states May 29th; we will have our policies written up for our "back to normal" changes by then. Promise! We will all get there!

So, for the moment, the following still holds:
We are allowing a maximum of 4 people into the building at a time. (But, we are no longer requiring that appointments be made.)

The proper wearing of masks and sanitizing protocols remain in place.

The time limit of 20 minutes, and access to the foyer, two front rooms and the children's room also remains in place.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these waters!

Please, stay safe and stay well.

Laurie, the Arms Library staff, and Board of Library Trustees
