Our COVID-19 Response

Washington County Free Library logo - 4 points reading book

The health and safety of Washington County Free Library customers and staff continue to be of utmost importance. WCFL has been diligent in following the advice of our federal, state, and local public health officials. 

Due to increased community spread in Washington County, the Board of Trustees and Administration at Washington County Free Library, with the support of the Washington County Health Department, require community members ages five and older to wear face coverings completely over their mouth and nose when visiting branch library buildings. 

During the current stage of our gradual reopening plan, the following services are available:  

Branch Libraries

  • Face coverings must be worn completely over the nose and mouth by community members ages five and older while inside WCFL branch library buildings. 
  • Consume food and beverages before entering the library buildings to ensure that all visitors are wearing their face coverings completely during the duration of their visit.
