Mask Policy

Masks are required to enter the building. Patrons must observe physical distancing, maintaining a minimum of 6 feet distance between individuals when possible.  Only one person at a time should be in each book aisle. People who are unable to wear a mask may continue using curbside services or homebound delivery.

Inside the Library:

The Town of Mansfield has issued an Emergency Order that masks or cloth face coverings must be worn by all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor public spaces, meeting spaces, private indoor businesses and all places of employment except when eating and drinking.

People who are unable to wear a mask may continue using curbside services or homebound delivery.

Outside Programs:

Out of respect for the many children who visit the library and cannot yet be vaccinated, we ask that you continue to wear a mask when we are closely gathered in a group.  We know you have a choice.  We ask for your help making the library a welcoming place for everyone in our community.


CURBSIDE PICKUP: Call the library, 860-423-2501, during regular service hours. Books will be retrieved after the phone call is completed, and you will usually be able to pick up your requests the following day.

COMPUTERS & PRINTING: Public computer use will be limited to 1 hour per person per day. The first 10 pages will be free when printing from a public computer. Mobile Printing is also available.
