FACE MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR PATRONS ENTERING ALL LIBRARIES OF THE BRYAN+COLLEGE STATION PUBLIC LIBRARY SYSTEM

Mayors for the Cities of Bryan and College Station have issued emergency orders requiring face masks to be worn in all businesses. These orders will take effect on Monday, June 29, 2020 for College Station and Tuesday, June 30, 2020 for Bryan. The orders ask for all persons age 10 or older, which is in guidelines with CDC, to wear face covering while conducting business for the health and safety of the citizens. This is to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the most vulnerable members of the community. Governor Abbott has issued a statewide mask requirement, which goes into effect at 12:01 p.m. on Friday, July 3, 2020. For more information on the orders, please visit…
