Pandemic regulations have recently changed at the state and national level, therefore, Avery-Mitchell-Yancey Regional Library has also adjusted its policies to reflect that wearing a mask is strongly recommended but not mandatory. We encourage everyone coming into our buildings to wear a mask as a way to protect themselves and others in a public setting.
AMY Regional Library makes this change in light of Governor Cooper’s lifting of mandatory capacity and gathering limits, social distancing requirements, and MOST masking requirements. The CDC and the Governor strongly recommend that people who are unvaccinated continue to wear a mask and social distance in all indoor public settings. The library system also requests that anyone who is not fully vaccinated wear a mask.
Appointments are required to use the computer lab and to use tutoring/study rooms.
Our summer reading programs for children and teens may include restrictions, be offered virtually, or be outside. Registration may be required to limit attendance. Because children under age 12 are unable to be vaccinated at this time, they are encouraged to wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces. Parents are urged to do what they feel is best to protect their children.
Please contact your local public library to hear more about specific summer programs and to ask any questions related to library services.
