Notice to Patrons
Date: May 19, 2021
Under the guidance of the CDC and NYS Governor, NOPL and its branches will adopt the new CDC guidance on mask use and social distancing at this time. We reserve the right to make changes at any time.
Unvaccinated individuals, under both CDC and state guidance, must wear masks within our facilities. Although mask wearing for vaccinated people is not required, we encourage wearing a mask inside our libraries to everyone, as we cannot guarantee the vaccination status of all individuals.
During this time, NOPL will continue to service all of our community members no matter their vaccination status by:
- Continuing curbside service for patrons who prefer or cannot enter the library
- Maintain capacity limits within each branch
- Continue providing virtual events and programs
- Provide outdoor programs where possible
