Ossipee Public Library Mask and Occupancy Policy during COVID-19 Pandemic
- Anyone over the age of 3 must wear a mask upon entering the Ossipee Public Library. If a person doesn’t have a mask, one will be provided. No more than 8 patrons will be allowed in the building at one time.
Library trustees under RSA 202-A:6 (management of public library property) have the authority to mandate that people entering a town building or library wear a face covering. They may also set limitations on the number of patrons allowed in the building at any one time.
- The Library will continue to offer outside pick up and outside copy/fax service for individuals who cannot wear a face covering.
- If a patron refuses to wear a mask in the building, the patron will be asked to leave the building.
