Libraries' restrictions easing; mask mandate remains

robbins logo 12

Effective Monday, Jan. 31, the restrictions on public seating and in-person programs, which have been in place since Jan. 3, were lifted.

Arlington's mask mandate is still in effect for indoor spaces, and we appreciate your compliance.

Thank you for your patience with us in January -- we can't wait to resume our role as a gathering place where magical story times and events happen, students hang out after school, and people relax with a newspaper or spend time studying.

In other exciting news, the library unveiled a new website and a new strategic plan for the library. See what's in store for the next five years and if you want to dig deeper, check out the community survey summary that helped inform the plan. 

Andrea Nicolay, director of libraries, reports that contactless pickup is an additional option available to library patrons who prefer it.

Because of the increase in virus transmission in this region and nationally, all in-person programs and public seating are suspended in January.

Please check the online events calendar for virtual program options.

Library officials will reevaluate these restrictions later this month. Thank you for your patience.
