Why do I have to wear a face covering in the library?

The virus that causes COVID-19 is mostly spread through the air. Even people who do not have symptoms and do not know they are infected can spread the virus. Masks and face coverings reduce those risks by preventing respiratory droplets from traveling in the air. When we wear face coverings, we are protecting each other. We are also helping to ensure that our library locations can remain open and that residents are able to move freely through the community.


For these reasons, face coverings are required to access services at all Meridian Library locations. If you do not have one, we will provide one.
