West Paris Public Library

COVID-19

UPDATE: Masks are required inside the building.

UPDATE (May 24th, 2021): The Library building is open with guidelines during our normal business hours. Masks are no longer required by people who are fully vaccinated. Consistent with the U.S. CDC's Guidelines, it is recommended that people in Maine who are not fully vaccinated wear face coverings in indoor public settings. People are welcome to continue to mask even if fully vaccinated. Free masks are available to anyone who needs them. Hand sanitizer stations are provided at the door and throughout the building. The use of hand sanitizer is encouraged. Visits to the library are no longer time limited. Building capacity limits have been lifted. Staff will continue to mask at this time out of concern consideration for those under age 12 who are unable to be vaccinated and in consideration of those who are immune compromised. Curbside service will continue to be available. We thank our patrons for continuing to mask if they are not fully vaccinated and for visiting the West Paris Library. Thank you for your continued support.
