COVID-19

The Green Hills Public Library District conducts its operation with the highest regard for the health and safety of its employees and the public.  We have been continuing to monitor COVID-19 updates from public health authorities.  This page contains information about the Library’s current service offerings.

Key Information You Need to Know Before You Visit the Library:

  • Library policy requires face masks to be worn by all patrons utilizing the Youth Services Department or in Youth Services programs, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.  In all other areas of the Library, face masks are required to be worn by patrons ages 2-11 (based on current availability of COVID-19 vaccines) as well as other individuals who are unvaccinated.  The Library will not collect information with regard to a patron’s COVID-19 vaccine status.  Reasonable accommodations are available to individuals who are medically prevented from wearing a face covering.

    • Self-serve equipment (i.e. computers, scan/fax/copy). Staff assistance is unavailable.
    • Computers will be limited to enforce physical distancing.  The length of sessions will be limited to accommodate the needs of our community.

    • A limited amount of general seating/tables are available.
