COVID19 Protocol Update: Masks no longer required, but encouraged in group/program settings.

Per CDC guidelines, and with Allegheny County now at ‘low’ level of concern for COVID19, the Library is no longer requiring the wearing of masks. Because we serve young children and vulnerable people, we encourage the wearing of masks in a group/program setting. Staff may choose to continue to wear masks. We will monitor case levels through the CDC and Allegheny County and adjust our policies as needed.

The health and wellbeing of our staff and patrons, including those unvaccinated and/or unable to get a vaccine, remains our priority.  Thank you for your kindness and support.
