ACPL COVID-19 Updates

All libraries are open to the public with the following safety protocols:

  • Consistent with CDC guidance, we request that unvaccinated individuals wear a mask in the library to protect themselves and others
  • If you’re feeling unwell, please wait to visit us, or look into using our no-contact curbside services.
  • Practice physical distancing while in a library, and know that we’ll be limiting the number of visitors inside at one time.
  • Need a public computer? Spaces will be open with time limitations and physical distancing.
  • Bikes are be available for checkout (and are sanitized between uses).
  • No in-person programs–yet! See our grab-and-go + virtual program offerings. As soon as it’s safe to offer in-person programming countywide, we will!
  • Some library activities and services continue to be suspended:
    • Public meeting room use
    • Notary services
    • Book donations and book sales.

Curbside Services will continue to be an option for anyone,
