Library Policies Updated

Lee Memorial Library has enacted temporary policies and an amended code of conduct during this pandemic era to provide for a safe environment and productive interactions for all. The library currently welcomes patrons for both walk-in and door-side services.

Library occupancy is strictly limited to no more than 16 patrons at a time, with a maximum of one visit per person per day, not to exceed 30 minutes. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult who supervises them in the library. Masks/face coverings must be worn at all times at the entrance and inside the building. Management reserves the right to deny service to those who do not conform to the amended policies or who put others’ safety in jeopardy.
