The Mansfield/Richland County Public Library has been working closely with Richland Public Health and the Ohio Department of Health and taking the precautionary steps recommended to help combat the spread of COVID-19.
In accordance with the Ohio Department of Health, unless an individual is fully vaccinated, all persons are required to wear a facial covering and engage in social distancing at all times in or on the grounds or premises. Please do not enter if you are sick. Masks are available upon request.
We do have services available for those who choose not to comply with the face mask requirement. Those services include Curbside Service, our online digital resources, and our “Chat with Us” service that can be found on this page.
Some library services that require close interaction or present concerns about maintaining sanitized surfaces will not be offered until further notice.
