Libraries’ mask policy

As of Monday, March 14, masks are no longer required in the Libraries but are still encouraged. Individuals who are not vaccinated or not up to date on their vaccinations are still required to wear masks indoors except when:

  • Actively sipping a covered beverage.
  • Actively eating or drinking in designated eating spaces. Hayden offers eating zones in its Courtyard Cafe, the Building 14 Courtyard, and the Porch outside Lewis. Food is not permitted in Barker, Dewey, Rotch, Lewis, or the Distinctive Collections Reading Room.
  • Alone in a library study room with the door closed.
