Face coverings are no longer required for entry into CML locations, however unvaccinated individuals are asked to please continue to wear them. CML asks that customers who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or who recently tested positive for COVID-19, not enter any CML buildings. Curbside pickup remains available as well.

CML will continue to follow guidelines provided by local, county and state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The safety of customers and staff is a priority for the library. Follow CML on social media (FacebookTwitter) and check for updates.
