LIbrary Mask Policy

In keeping with the new CDC guidelines, masks will no longer be required in the library, however we strongly recommend masks  in the children’s area.  Ulster County is  currently a MEDIUM risk according to metrics used by the CDC and we will continue to monitor the guidelines and make necessary adjustments as we have throughout this Pandemic. Social distance policy remains in effect for programs.
