Masking for All Patrons and Visitors to Take Effect on Wednesday, August 4th.

As of today, 3 August 2021, Warren County is now among 23 New York counties where COVID spread is considered “substantial” per U.S. CDC estimates. Warren County Health Services continues to recommend the wearing of masks or face coverings in crowded public places where you do not know the vaccination status of all who are around you. With this in mind, we are asking all patrons and visitors to where face masks while in the Library. This will take effect on Wednesday, 4 August 2021. If we all pull together, we can get past this current spike of the Delta Variant of the COVID-19 Virus. Let’s all protect each other and THANK YOU!
