Staying Safe Together

group of people in masks

With the significant number of COVID cases in Ohio, Summit County’s status on the COVID map, and the Governor’s enhanced mask mandate, we have revised our mask protocol for customers. Effective immediately, we will no longer allow medical exemptions. All customers, including children ages 2 and up, must wear masks in our buildings. Masks must be worn properly, fitting snugly over both the nose and mouth. The Library will provide a mask to any customer who enters the building without one.

For customers who are not able to, or do not wish to, adhere to this new policy, we offer many service options that make continued access possible:

We’re in this together, and we look forward to serving you with our revised safety protocols in place.


March 1: Goodyear, Highland Square and Tallmadge branch locations are all open for regular hours today.

Details are subject to change. The Library will post updates on our website and the branch Facebook pages.
