Library Mask Requirements
For Your Safety and Ours
As of Wednesday, August 4, 2021, the St. Charles Public Library requires all individuals, vaccinated and unvaccinated, to wear a mask when entering the Library. Mesh masks are not allowed in the Library.
The Kane County Health Department has announced that as of July 31, 2021, the level of COVID-19 virus transmission in Kane County has reached "Substantial." In communities where COVID levels are "Substantial" or "High," the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommends every person -- regardless of vaccination status -- wear a mask indoors in public settings. Per this information, the Library is following the recommended guidelines.
In addition, we ask that you:
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Place holds and pick up materials through our drive-up window if you cannot or do not want to wear a mask when visiting the Library.
For more information about COVID-19 transmission by county, visit the CDC website.
To schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment, visit the Kane County Health Department's vaccine website.
The Library's highest priority is following protocol that protects the health and safety of the community. Future updates or changes to our current mask requirements will be communicated via our website and social media channels.
