Safety Precautions

  • Masks and/or face cloth coverings are highly recommended (even for those who are fully vaccinated) but not required. Masks will be provided for free to those who need them.
    • We are adhering to CDC mask guidelines. If at any point the information listed on this page contradicts the CDC guidelines (because of recent updates, for example), the latter will prevail. Visit the CDC’s page concerning masks HERE.
  • Patrons are encouraged to use hand sanitizer while browsing books. There will be several sanitizing stations available throughout the library.
  • 6-feet social distancing is encouraged.
  • Staff cleans high-touch surfaces frequently throughout the day.
  • Computer keyboards are covered with disposable plastic after each use, and mice are cleaned after each use.

Permanent Changes

  • If you signed up for a card online so that you could have access to Libby/OverDrive, your account will expire soon. You will need to come to the library in person to fill out a paper application and get a physical library card to continue accessing eBooks on that platform.
  • We will continue to offer the prints@acpl.org email address to patrons who wish to send us items for printing. When you come to the library, tell us your name and we will print them once you arrive.
  • Most teen and adult programs will now be offered virtually or as kits that can be picked up at the library and taken home. There may be in-person programs in the future, but the majority will remain virtual and take-home.
