Visitors to Ames Public Library and the Bookmobile are encouraged to wear face masks. Disposable masks are available for free in the Library's lobby.
Story County and Iowa currently have a high level of community transmission of COVID-19. In such areas, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all people older than 2, whether vaccinated or not, wear a face mask indoors in public to reduce transmission of the COVID-19 Delta variant.
Ames Public Library is an important resource for the entire community, including people with weakened immune systems, people at higher risk from COVID-19, and children under 12 who are not yet eligible for vaccination against COVID-19. Thank you for helping make the Library a space where our community members can feel safe.
Library users in need of special accommodations may call (515) 239-5646 ext. 2 for assistance.
The Library staff and Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the situation and collaborate with City officials and health experts to adapt Library services as needed.
