Mask Policy

Masks are required to enter the building. Patrons must observe physical distancing, maintaining a minimum of 6 feet distance between individuals when possible.  Only one person at a time should be in each book aisle. People who are unable to wear a mask may continue using curbside services or homebound delivery.

Inside the Library:

Given the large number of children who visit during the summer for reading programs, the library will follow Mansfield Public Schools policy regarding masks:

  • Building Administration will require the use of face coverings that covers the mouth and nose for all students, staff, and visitors when they are inside the school building, with certain exceptions listed such as:
    • For anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance, or is exhibiting signs/symptoms of having difficulty with breathing following CDC/DPH guidelines.
    • Eating or drinking within established areas and times, using physical distancing.

 People who are unable to wear a mask may continue using curbside services or homebound delivery.

Outside Programs:

Out of respect for the many children who visit the library and cannot yet be vaccinated, we ask that you continue to wear a mask when we are closely gathered in a group.  We know you have a choice.  We ask for your help making the library a welcoming place for everyone in our community.
