We are following state mandated safety requirements and best practices including:
Limiting the duration of library visits is a safety protocol adopted by most public libraries that have reopened. This practice helps ensure the safety of patrons and staff and provides service that is not only sustainable but in keeping with the current Level 3 Health Advisory guidance that directs Montgomery County residents to limit activities as much as possible.
We will continue to evaluate our practices as health conditions and guidance change. We appreciate your cooperation.
